Description

The Flaming Star Nebula (Caldwell 31, IC 405, Sharpless 2-229) is an emission and reflection nebula located 1,500 light years away in the constellation of Auriga. It was first discovered in 1891 by the German-born (though he immigrated to the USA as an infant) astronomer John Martin Schaeberle (1853 – 1924).

Caldwell 31 was imaged between 30 November 2018 and 8 January 2019 from a remote imaging rig in Spain owned and operated by Barry Wilson and Steve Milne.
