PICTURE OF THE DAYsee all »

The Rosette Nebula

This active star-forming region lies in the constellation Monoceros the Unicorn only 5,200 light-years distant. The massive glowing cloud of hydrogen has been condensing to form new stars, and astronomers think it similar to the environment that gave birth to our solar system. (7.2-inch Takahashi Epsilon-180 refractor, QHYCCD QHY11S CCD camera, Hydrogen-alpha/RGB image with exposures of 18, 6, 6, and 6 minutes, respectively)
