NGC 2024 (Flame Nebula)

This is NGC 2024 or "Flame Nebula" in the constellation Orion. Appropriately named.

The hidden fires of the Flame Nebula This VISTA image shows the spectacular star-forming region known as the Flame Nebula, or NGC 2024, in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings. In views of this evocative object in visible light the core of the nebula is completely hidden behind obscuring dust, but in this VISTA view, taken in infrared light, the cluster of very young stars at the object’s heart is revealed.

This image, the first to be released publicly from VISTA, the world’s largest survey telescope, shows the spectacular star-forming region known as the Flame Nebula, or NGC in the constellation of Orion (the Hunter) and its surroundings.

NGC 602 is a young, bright open cluster of   stars located in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a satellite galaxy to the   Milky Way. Radiation and shock waves from the stars have pushed away much of the   lighter surrounding gas and dust that compose the nebula known as N90, and this   in turn has triggered new star formation in the ridges (or "elephant trunks") of   the nebula.

Christmas Tree Cluster (NGC is a young triangular-shaped open cluster of stars embedded in a star-forming cloud, located around 2600 light-years away in the north-eastern corner of the constellation of Monoceros (the Unicorn)

The Monkey Head Nebula (also known as NGC 2174) is an H II emission nebula located in the constellation Orion and is associated with the open star cluster NGC 2175.It is thought to be located about 6,400 light-years away from Earth. Within the Nebula small dark clumps of gas can be seen. These dark clumps are the birth places of stars. Gas will continue to condense in these local regions until the pressure of gravity causes it to ignite and form a star.

Colors are fabulous!

The California Nebula It reminds me so much of our Laser Starfield Projectors!
