Abstract: We present an introductory analysis of 6 peculiar stellar complexes in the interacting galaxy M51. We use archive HST-WFPC2 U,B,V,R,I & Hα imaging to determine their properties. All 6 complexes are extremely young < 10 Myr, are located in the spiral arms, and are comprised of young star clusters and individual stars. We are interested in tracing the origins of these complexes, as well as their subsequent evolution.
