NGC 1931

NGC 1931 is a like a small Orion Nebula tucked away in the constellation of Auriga. The bustling of young stars seemingly bursting from their natal sphere of gas is captured in this moment of time. The brightest OB stars in the heart of the nebula will live short dramatic lives while the myriad of small yellow suns will live on in a cluster and orbit the galaxy together.
