The Trifid Nebula is a star forming area in one of the Milky Way's spiral arms. The most massive star born of the Trifid has a mass 20 times that of our own sun and is surrounded by a cloud of over 3000 embryonic stars. The Trifid is bright and quite unique when viewed through a telescope, making it a favorite for amateur astronomers.
