Near-infrared view of the DR21 Region
This near-infrared image, from the Two-Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS), of the DR21 region covers an area about two times that of a full moon. Many stars are discerned in this image because near-infrared light pierces through some of the obscuration of the interstellar dust.
