Comments: IC405 is created by the radiant energy of AE Auriga, a highly energetic variable star. This star was formed in M42 but was ejected by gravitational interactions with other stars. AE Auriga is just passing through this nebulosity; it was not formed from it. Both reflection and emission nebulae are presenting this amazing nebula.

vdB 34: Size (arcmin): 18, Type: illuminating star inside nebula, Surface brightness: bright, Absorption: weak, Illuminating star ID1: BD+34 980, Illuminating star ID2: HD 34078, Mag. of illuminating star: 6V.
