New B-type dwarf stars Rho Ophiuchi and companions, and HD 147889 near the intensely dark molecular cloud that seems to envelope and erase all the stars within and behind it. Looking closely here I can see what I think is the top left star’s motion away from the cloud, leaving a wake in the darkness. The groups of new blue stars reflect their new light on the remaining material from which they were birthed, producing a brilliant blue glow across the region.
