The Lambda Centauri Nebula (guess which star is near it) has an amazing amount of star formation. It is peppered with the so-called Bok globules, concentrated dark patches where low-mass stars are suspected to develop. IC 2944 lies in that part of Centaur which does not make it above Baton Rouge's horizon.

The Astronomy's 2015 Deep Space Mysteries calendar uses as its February image one from the European Southern Observatory, a portion of which is probably seen here...
