Description

Located at Doradus constellation, is a large region of ionized gas surrounding a collection of newly-forming stars at the eastern end of the stellar bar in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).

The greenish color you appreciate is not a bad color calibration. In fact, NGC2070 is one of the few DSO objects where we can find "green" in space.
