APEX turns its eye to dark clouds in Taurus.
Apex telescope captured this image of part of the Taurus Molecular Cloud, the nearest (450 light-years) large star formation region to Earth, showing a more than ten light-years long filament of cosmic dust. Above the filament you can see a bright star, it’s φ Tauri.
