Flames and Baby Frogs
January 11th, 2018
The gem of Auriga, this is a huge region of ionized hydrogen that is spectacular even visually. Dotted with open clusters like M 38 in the bottom left corner of the image, Auriga is an appealing target. The flaming star nebula, top, is hydrogen gas being energized by the star AE Auriga. The tadpoles (below the flaming star) are very small in this feild but can be seen if one zooms in. They are both surrounded by residual gas and dust from our milky way.
