Sharpless 2-106 is relatively close to Earth only 2,000
light-years from us. Nebula like Sharpless 2-106 are stellar nurseries, where new stars are born. Infra-red views of the nebula reveal more than 600 brown dwarfs which are about a tenth the mass of our sun and unable to support fusion in the sub-stellar core.
