NGC 1333 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Perseus. It belongs to the Perseus OB2 molecular cloud complex. It is one of the nearest star forming regions and particularly rich in young stars. Stellar clusters are born embedded within molecular clouds and during their early evolution they are often only visible at infrared wavelengths because they are heavily obscured by dust.
