TADPOLE NEBULA  IC410

IC410 is a dusty emission nebula located in the constellation of Auriga at about 12.000 ly from Earth. It is part of a larger star forming region that also contains the Flaming Star Nebula. The emission of IC 410, which is about 12,000 light-years away, is powered by the young hot stars in NGC 1893. The gas streamers about center are often called the “Tadpoles”
