Images taken by the Spritzer infared telescope of the Orion Nebula showing thousands of nascent solar systems (Aug 2006). (As a side note, this is the nebula that the Maya use to refer to as Xibalba (the underworld) and features prominently in the recently released 'The Fountain'). http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/features/hiddenuniverse/index.shtml#20061218
