What an amazing image. I assume the large object is Jupiter.

That clump of stars at the top is called the seven sisters or Pleiades. Some info I collected: contains around 1,400 stars, located about 400 light-years away,but one of the closest star clusters. One of the stars, is HD 23514, which has a mass and luminosity a bit greater than those of the sun, is surrounded by an extraordinary number of hot dust particles — "hundreds of thousands of times as much dust as around our sun,The dust is the debris from a monster collision.

The astronomers analyzed emissions from countless microscopic dust particles and concluded that the most likely explanation is that the particles are debris from the violent collision of planets or planetary embryos.
