NGC 6334 is a large star-forming region, covering an area in the night sky slightly larger than the full moon. It is one of the most active star nurseries producing massive stars in the Milky Way. Located toward the constellation Scorpio, about 5,500 light years away and an estimated 50 light years in length. The big bright cloud has earned the nickname cat paw because it looks like a gigantic cat footprint because of the three bubbles in the image that resemble the pads of its paws.
