From this oyster of Hydrogen comes the new baby pearl – Al Niyat, actually two twin stars too close to tell apart. The region is clouded with orange glowing dust from Antares out of frame but ten-times further away from this oyster the globular cluster M4 floats in the background, filled with thousands of stars, aged and depleted and heading slowly towards their stellar life’s end.
