Maybe so many stars forming in one area create magnetic fields? Stars have magnetic fields... many, many stars might magnetize other things as they form?
It is a chicken-and-egg kind of thing. Are the stars forming because of magnetic fields, or are the magnetic fields the product of stars? We're seeing feedback processes. Electric currents produce magnetic fields produce electric currents. Mass produces gravity which influences mass.
I wonder what effect if any it would have on any objects passing through the area....
None... unless you're talking about objects that are the size of dust. Even in regions like this, almost everything is weak and tenuous- weak fields, hard vacuums, low gravity.
I think I have an answer.... Stars MAKE dust... Dust can be magnetic or not... Stars have magnetic fields...dust can be magnetized by the stars and their light...It might not HAVE to be magnetic to help form stars at all...mass naturally can come together.
THEN, when you have a star and it spews out dust...THAT is magnetized, it used to be in the star after all... lots of stars...lots of magnetized dust...and they might even show some polarization over vast distances....just my thoughts.
Also...even if the dust did not come from within a star...it could still be magnetized by the star light...as per this article perhaps?
Here is an article on molecules and light.
"It is well known that if a nonmagnetic molecule absorbs light, often it makes a switch to the magnetic form, and that form will live for a long time and slowly give off light,"
