Within the constellation Monoceros – the unicorn – 2,700 light years away (approx. 1.39E12 km) lies the object cataloged as NGC 2264. Curiously enough there are four objects that are within NGC 2264. The Cone Nebula, The Christmas Tree Cluster (both of which are officially included in NGC 2264), The Snowflake Cluster, and The Fox Fur Nebula – imaged here (are unofficially part of NGC 2264).
The prominent red gas within the nebula emits its own light due to the ultraviolet radiation from the hot blue stars within the cluster. Blue color can be seen which is most likely dust reflecting the blue light from the same stars.
The nebula is thought to be relatively young along with the stars that have formed within the nebula – their stellar nursery only beginning to spark stellar life in the clouds of hydrogen that span for several light years.
I can only imagine flying through the massive clouds of gas for millions of kilometers with hundreds of hot blue stars filling my vision. Young blue pearls that excite the hydrogen gas to emit a charming celestial red. The environment a soft hue of maroon that fills my consciousness with a warm feeling of maternal acceptance.
Wow! That’s all I can say. I’m completely speechless at the moment, have no idea what to say so here it goes hahaa 😁
As the first twelve months of our relationship have gone by, I have realised that I am the world’s luckiest guy. I have a girlfriend who is not just beautiful and pretty, but one who makes me laugh at the most stupid things on this planet.
I love all our little inside jokes we have, our cod sessions blow em up, our midnight feasts well all of our feasts I cook hahaa, our car rides blasting the tunes and our 3am dnm chats.
I’m so proud of you baby and the person you’ve become. I know you can get this job and I’m so proud of the achievements you’ve accomplished.
You’re always there for me through thick and thin you’ve got my back. Thank you so much for helping me transform and continue to turn into the man I’m meant to be 😍🙊
Happy One year anniversary my beautiful baby girl ❤️

So my friend and I make up stuff when we're bored.
So a few months back we were kidding around about something even though I don’t know what it is now. But I said I was an alien and planning my plot to take over the world. And we made up this entire story line to go with it. He’s now trying to guess the planet I’m from and he’s making up some ridiculous little names of planets and I love our ridiculously lovely conversations. 👽👽👽
I loved waking up to a pinkish purple morning w a cuppa tea !! I love the beautifulness that our planet has but no one appreciates // #photography #sunrise #sunrises #tumblr #outdoors #morning #enviornment #environmentalist by littlesweetnessluna https://www.instagram.com/p/BA6dEcbgp_o/
