Here's where the stars form. Clumps of matter in a nebula get pressed together and start to glow. They coalesce and as they get larger, their gravity brings in more material. Pretty soon, in a few million years, you have a star! Before they are stars, they are sparks, glowing in the infra-red, warming up the cold misty void.
