Description

«NGC 6188 is an emission nebula located about 4,000 light years away in the constellation Ara. 
The bright open cluster NGC 6193, visible to the naked eye, is responsible for a region of 
reflection nebulosity within NGC 6188. 
NGC 6188 is a star forming nebula, and is sculpted by the massive, young stars that have 
recently formed there – some are only a few million years old. 
This spark of formation was probably caused when the last batch of stars went supernova.»
