Description

Rich in star clusters and nebulae, the ancient constellation of Auriga, the Charioteer, rides high in northern winter night skies. This telescopic view shows off some of Auriga's most popular sights. The crowded field sweeps along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy in the direction opposite the galactic center.

Look toward the 10 o'clock from center to find emission nebula IC 410, significantly more distant, some 12,000 light-years away. Star forming IC 410 is famous for its embedded young star cluster, NGC 1893, and tadpole-shaped clouds of dust and gas.

The Flaming Star Nebula, IC 405, is just a little farther along. Its convoluted clouds of glowing hydrogen gas are energized by hot O-type star AE Aurigae.

Two of our galaxy's open star clusters can be found in top right corner - M38 and NGC1907 line up in the starfield above, familiar to many binocular-equipped skygazers.
