Abstract

The true birth of a star is much less dramatic than the sudden appearance in the sky of Tycho Brahe’s new star. It is actually a furtive secretive affair, which astronomers have only recently become able to observe directly. Nonetheless, a genuine stellar birthplace is one of the landmarks of the night sky.
