“The Tadpoles and the Flaming Star” - Runaway Stars, Clusters, and Nebulae
The Flaming Star Nebula - IC405, seen at the bottom - is an emission/reflection nebula that is close to the runnaway star AE Aurigae. AE Aurigae is bulletting through space at an abnormally high velocity relative to its nebula. The effects of its motion can be observed within nebula IC405. This image also contains IC410 - an emission nebula - which can be seen at the top of this image. IC410 is best known for its tadpole like star forming clumps seen in its left side.
