Pick a superlative and it has been used by observers around the globe to describe the extraordinary new infrared image recorded by the Spitzer Space Telescope of billowing clouds of dust ablaze with the light of newborn stars. Described as the Mountains of Creation, the clouds lie a region of deep space some 7,000 lightyears away from Earth.

The picture reminds viewers of the famous Pillars of Creation photo of the Eagle Nebula in visible light recorded by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope back in 1995. The Pillars of Creation photo »

Gas and dust. Both the Mountains of Creation and the Pillars of Creation are star-forming clouds of cool gas and dust that have been sculpted into columns by radiation and winds from nearby hot, massive stars.
