Once thought to be part of the Orion nebula, the star cluster NGC 1980 is actually a separate entity, scientists say. It appears around the brightest star seen at the bottom of this image, iota Ori. The disks around the star are the result of internal light reflection in the camera optics. CREDIT: © CFHT/Coelum (J.-C. Cuillandre & G. Anselmi)
