Description

This is actually a part of the Lion Nebula: you can see upside down the Lion’s head on the center right and his back and tail doing an arc on the top left of the picture.

This region is populated by a huge number of class O and B and also by a couple of Wolf-Rayet stars as it used to be a strong star nursery area.
