Description

This picture summarizes the stages in the life of a star: emerging along with some other stars (NGC 2175) from a cloud of interstellar matter and ionizing the debris oft the cloud (NGC 2174); existing in an open starcluster (M 35) for a while, dispersing into the surrounding star field, aging to a red giant (epsilon and mu Gem), and, sometimes exploding as a supernova, leaving an attractive remnant (IC 443) behind.
