  chamaeleon facts - about chamaeleon
A star such as chamaeleon is a celestial body of hot gases that radiates energy derived from thermonuclear reactions in the interior.
Star formation such as for chamaeleon occurs in molecular clouds, which are large regions of high density in the interstellar medium (albeit less dense than the inside of an earthly vacuum chamber).
The energy produced by stars such as chamaeleon radiates into space as electromagnetic radiation, as a stream of neutrinos from the star's centre, and as a stream of particles from the star's outer layers (its stellar wind).

 Chamaeleon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chamaeleon (IPA: /kəˈmiːliən/, Latin: chameleon) is a minor southern constellation.
The constellation was one of twelve constellations created by Pieter Dirkszoon Keyser and Frederick de Houtman between 1595 and 1597, and it first appeared in Johann Bayer's Uranometria of 1603.
The constellation contains a number of molecular clouds (called the "Chamaeleon dark clouds") that are forming low-mass T Tauri stars.

 Near-infrared Photometric Variability of Stars Toward the Chamaeleon I Molecular Cloud
The variables can be grouped into a population of bright, red objects that are associated with the Chamaeleon I association, and a population of faint, blue variables that are dispersed over the full 6 deg of the survey and are likely field stars or older pre-main-sequence stars unrelated to the present-day Chamaeleon I molecular cloud.
The solid line in the color-magnitude diagram is the 2 Myr pre-main-sequence isochrone from D'Antona & Mazzitelli (1997,98) for stellar masses between 0.08 Mo and 3 Mo. The solid curves in the color-color diagram are the loci of red giant and main-sequence stars from Bessell & Brett (1988) in the 2MASS color system.
These panels show that the largest concentration of variable stars is toward the Chamaeleon I molecular cloud despite the overall decrease in the stellar surface density, indicating many of the variable stars must be associated with the Chamaeleon I molecular cloud.
