Color-composite image of the mapped area in Lupus III by c2d. The figure shows the very active star-forming core, which contains the two Herbig Ae/Be stars HR 5999 and HR 6000 at RA ~ 16h09m and DEC ~ -39°10' and a stream of PAH emission to the North of the core (RA ~ 16h10m – 16h08m and DEC ~ -39°).
