Fascinating video, and I particularly loved seeing how stars sort of "rise and billow like smoke" from their likely birthplace in the Trapezium region. It is also correct to say that the fertile site of star formation recedes as more and more of the gas is converted into stars.

But I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see the Becklin-Neugebauer infrared source, which is an embedded massive star located to the northwest (upper right) of the Trapezium. Or is that white stuff below the Trapezium stars in the video actually the embedded Becklin-Neugebauer star?
