The Large Magellanic Cloud hosts numerous gas clouds that are, generally, star birth sites. This case is not an exception and N55, N64 and N62/N62B are active star birth regions. This image shows some additional objects (most of them in the left half) that are interesting. First, SNR B0535-66.0, a SuperNova remnant located just in front of NGC 2030, an emission nebula. A distant background galaxy is shown close to N62B and labeled LEDA 178603. A reliable redshift of it has not been found.
The third object is the tiny nebula shown left of center and labeled with “?”. This nebula is not catalogued nor described in the literature.
This image was taken with narrowband filters (Halpha and OIII) and mapped to natural colors (Ha: R and 15% B; OIII: G and B).
