NASA tweeted out a photo of a collection of glittering stars that are more than 20,000 light years away from Earth!

The stars look like a red, white and blue aerial burst.

The cluster is surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust - the raw material for new star formation.

This Hubble Space Telescope captured the image in August 2009 and December 2009.
