New observations of the DR 21 star forming region obtained with IRAC and MIPS, the IR camera and photometer onboard the Spitzer Space Telescope are presented. The unprecedented high sensitivity and resolution of the images, over an area of more than 0.5 , display a richness of detail in the complex structure of the ISM and reveal the presence of several new self-obscured (protostars) sources.
