Star Forming Region NGC 2174 Tapestry
The subject is a collection of carved knots of gas and dust in the Monkey Head Nebula, also known as NGC 2174 and Sharpless Sh2-252. The nebula is a star-forming region that hosts dusky dust clouds silhouetted against glowing gas. Massive newly-formed stars near the center of the nebula (and toward the right in this image) are blasting away at dust within the nebula. Ultraviolet light from these bright stars helps carve the dust into giant pillars. The nebula is mostly composed of hydrogen gas, which becomes ionized by the ultraviolet radiation and gives the nebulosity credence for its title as an HII region. Your home will be out of this world with this high-quality tapestry made of 100% polyester and is available in various sizes.
