Trumpler 27

March 31, 2003
Atlas Image mosaic, covering 15.3´ × 13.6´ on the sky, of the heavily reddened young open cluster Trumpler 27. The bright reddish star to the northeast of the image center is a WC9 Wolf-Rayet star with a very large infrared excess, due to thermal reemission of the star's ultraviolet photons by dust grains local to the star. 1999 Jul 14-20
