Flaming Star
  • Flaming Star

    About 1,500 light years away in the constellation Auriga is the bright nebula, The Flaming Star. The glowing blue region at the center of this image is created by the light from a massive, blue dwarf star, AE Auriga, reflecting off of the surrounding dust.  In this image exposures taken in two different years with two different telescopes were combined. To enhance the detail of the nebular structure only the best one-third of the exposures were used.


    31 hours total exposure of RGB (visible light), ionized hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur emissions
