DescriptionThe nebula surrounds, and partly obscures, a young cluster of stars (NGC 1893) and of course the tadpoles (above and left to the center). Partly obscured by foreground dust, the nebula itself surrounds NGC 1893, a young galactic cluster of stars that energizes the glowing gas. The tadpoles are around 10 light-years long and might house ongoing star formation. IC410 lies some 12,000 light-years away, toward the constellation Auriga. Due to bad weather during last fall it took some time to get all the subs. The last of them was taken during new years eve, where a pause had to be taken around midnight for all the fire works to settle.
