In this image taken by the Hubble space telescope, two stars are shining through the center of a ring of cascading dust. This star system is known DI Cha and its a quadruple system containing two sets of binary stars.

As this is a relatively young star system it is surrounded by dust. The young stars are molding the dust into a wispy wrap. 

The host of this attractive interaction between dust and star is the Chamaeleon I dark cloud, one of three such clouds that comprise a large star-forming region known as the Chamaeleon Complex. 

DI Cha's juvenility is not remarkable within this region. In fact, the entire system is among not only the youngest but also the closest collections of newly formed stars to be found and so provides an ideal target for studies of star formation.
