Hi all,

An image of the Monkey Head Nebula, NGC 2174, has been uploaded. This nebula is, as usual in emission nebulae, a star forming region. The difference with this one is that this one is forming stars at a very high rate. It contains at least four recently formed open clusters and 577 Young Stellar Objects (YSOs, stars in the act of being formed). You can find the image and more info at:
