Description

The Monkey Head nebula, NGC2174
The nebula covers an area larger than the full moon, and lies in a distance of 6400 lightyears away from you.
This image also contains an open cluster NGC2175, (OCL476, CR84) which is embedded in a diffuse nebula SH2-252

I found my childhood memories in the Tadpole nebula and the Jellyfish nebula, I have been chasing a princess in the constellation Andromeda. The hunters hip and sword where stars are born is thoroughly investigated and I found a Soul (nebula) in the heavens.🔭
In the swan I found a bridal vail with a triangle and a witches broom, scary stuff😱 man.
At last I found myself, or at least my self portrait.
