This view lies within the Large Magellanic Cloud, show several superclusters, including NGC 1850 toward the upper left and the star-forming area, NGC 1910 toward the lower right. To me, an interesting feature is the low-level background red cloud (lower right trending toward the upper left). An expansive, faint feature that provides some image contrast and maybe a bit of calming effect. I hope you keep calm and enjoy the view. Comments, suggestions, critiques?
