Description

The constellation of Monoceros is home to a large cloud of gas and dust known as the Rosette Nebula. At the heart of this cosmic star nursery lies a cluster of hot young stars officially known as NGC 2244. Their stellar winds are clearing a hole in the center of the nebula (NGC 2237) while the surrounding dust and gas glows from the ultraviolet light created by these stars.
