Christmas in the Cosmos: The Rosette and Cone Nebula

Just in time for the holidays! East of Orion lies a heavenly garden with extraordinary wonders andorned in cosmic lights. In this wide field mosaic by David Lindemann we are treated to an incredibly detailed view of the Rosette and Cone Nebula. Both are found in the constellation of the Unicorn (Monoceros) and can be viewed through a small telescope on dark winter and early spring nights.
