Description

IC 2944 presented in narrowband without stars- thank you Starnet ++ (best star removal software ever!)

The star forming Bok globules float above the swirling painterly molecular gaseous clouds of O3 & Ha. These gases in turn contrast against the mountain range like shock fronts of S2 - thus creating a somewhat surreal sci-fi landscape.

Taken from my light polluted backyard in Melbourne, Australia.
