The Seagull

Cataloged as IC2177, the Seagull nebula is a supernova reminant about three full moon widths wide laying along the boundry between the constellations Monoceros and Canis Major. The majority of the object is about 4,000 light years away and contains numerous features, and has areas of active star formation.

It seems appropriate that the seagull should be captured at the Winter Star Party in the Florida Keys in February 2017.
