Rosette Nebula NGC 2237
The Rosette Nebula is a nebula in the Milky Way galaxy. It is an H II region located near one end of a giant molecular cloud in the Monoceros region of the Milky Way Galaxy. It's called an emission nebula because its young stars are so hot that the gases in the nebula give off colored light. The nebula is 130 Light Years across and 5200 Light Years away from us.
