Astronomy Science ~ Of the following matters what the equation: a cone, fox fur, and a Christmas tree? Answer: they are all in the Unicorn (Monoceros) constellation. The picture is a star-forming region cataloged as NGC 2264, a complex mix of cosmic gas and dust between the approximately 2,700 light-years away from Earth.

Mingled with reddish emission from an energetic luminous nebula of born stars, and also with dark interstellar dust clouds. Clouds of dust located close to hot stars and young also reflected starlight, forming blue reflection nebulae. The image covers about 3/4 degree of the sky, covering 40 light-years from NGC 2264.
