An anonymous reader writes “A NASA team has identified about 2,100 young star candidates in a region called the North American Nebula. The nebula is named after its resemblance to the North American continent in visible light. There were only about 200 young stars known before. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has taken images of the new stars at all stages of development, from dusty little tots to young adults.”
