TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Astronomers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have discovered a perfectly decorated Christmas tree 2,500 light years from earth. Scientists at the University of Arizona's Steward Observatory said the remarkable star cluster gives them the first glimpse of newborn stars acting just as predicted - patterned geometrically and spaced according to density, temperature and gravity.

The stars are less than 100,000 years old and located in a nebula in the Monoceros, or Unicorn, constellation. The constellation is visible in the winter sky to the east of Orion.

For most people who don't know much about our universe it shows them that new stars are being found all the time it seems like. It also alerts most people to the fact that there is more that the 9 planets, the moons, and the sun. This is an excellent find.
