These bubble-like shapes are likely only seen because of the Hubble Space Telescope’s unique viewpoint. At a distance of 160,000 light-years, the Large Magellanic Cloud – which is home to these “bubbles” – is one of the Milky Way’s closest companions. It is also home to one of the largest and most intense regions of active star formation known to exist anywhere in our galactic neighborhood – the Tarantula Nebula.
