Shining in light across the electromagnetic spectrum, 30 Doradus glows because of all the energetic processes that go on there. A distinctive region visible in a Milky Way satellite galaxy called the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), 30 Doradus is a hotbed of star formation, supernova explosions, and ionized plasma. The above image is a composite of three pictures taken in three different wavelength bands of light.

The Tarantula Nebula (also known as 30 Doradus, or NGC is a huge star-formation complex in the Large Magellanic Cloud. It is the most active starburst region in the entire Local Group of galaxies.
