Sh2-234 - IC417 - THE SPIDER

IC   417   (also   known   as   Sh2-234)   is   an   emission nebula   of   almost   100   light-years   across,   located some   10,000   light-years   away   from   Earth   in   the constellation    of    Auriga    (the    Charioteer).    It    is often   referred   to   as   the   Spider   Nebula   and   in that   case   its   prey   is   a   nearby   emission   nebula called the Fly (NGC 1931). The    nebula    contains    a    young    open    cluster    of about    40    stars,    and    is    energized    by    its    hot, massive   blue   stars   which   are   still   embedded   in glowing   hydrogen   gas.   The   bluish   clouds   of   gas at   the   top   of   the   image   are   locations   of   new   star formation.
