Description

"Among Triangulum's most distinctive features is NGC 604, a region of starbirth so big that the Space Telescope Science Institute once described it as "monstrous".

If NGC 604 were at the same distance from Earth as the Orion Nebula, it would be the brightest object in the night sky (besides the moon).

The young stars are extremely hot, at 72,000 degrees F (40,000 C), and the biggest ones are 120 times the mass of the sun. Radiation pumping out from the young stars floods into the gas in the region, making it fluoresce or glow.

Within our Local Group, only the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud exceeds NGC 604 in the number of young stars even though the Tarantula Nebula is slightly smaller in size."
