Astronomy Science ~ Where all the stars in this region? What used to be considered as a hole in the universe is now known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud. Here, a high concentration of dust and molecular gas absorb practically all the visible light emitted by the star behind it.

Scary dark environment helps make the interior of the molecular cloud as some of the coldest and most isolated places in the universe. One of the most famous of these absorbent nebula is a cloud that is paraded to the Ophiuchus constellation known as Barnard 68, seen in the picture.

No stars are visible in the middle, which means that Barnard 68 is relatively close, which is expected within approximately 500 light years across and extends about half a light-year.

It is unknown exactly how molecular clouds like Barnard 68 form, but it is known that this cloud itself is likely places for new stars to form. In fact, Barnard 68 itself is known to collapse and form new star systems. We can penetrate this cloud in infrared light.
