Barnard's Loop

Barnard's Loop is an immense gas cloud named after the long-deceased pioneering astrophotographer Edward Emerson Barnard.

The Loop stretches for hundreds of light years and is full of stars, but the central cloud is relatively empty, save for a few unremarkable T Tauris, red and orange dwarves. But, surprisingly, it's one of those dim reddish stars right at the center that hides a wonder more valuable than any neutron remnant or a black hole. The center of Barnard's Loop is very pink and light red.
