National Geographic: Stars in Scorpius Image courtesy NASA The star cluster Prismis 24 hangs above the monstrous emission nebula NGC 6357, seen here in this 2006 image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Located 8,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Scorpius, blazing stars some hundred times more massive than our sun lie buried within the nebula and are heating up the gas surrounding the cluster, creating the cavernous bubble visible at the bottom of the image.
