IC410 is an emission nebula where the radiation ionized hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur are stimulated by a cluster of stars (NGC 1893) that lies at the nebula’s center. The cluster consists of young (~ 4 Myr old), large, hot stars (an “OB association”). Not only do the young-star radiation ionize the gases, but strong stellar winds sculpt the gas, molecules, and dust. The two “tadpoles” at about 8:00 owe their existence to the relatively recent ignition of stars near their heads and the intense winds created by this star ignition.
