The Flaming Star Nebula
The Flaming Star Nebula (IC 405) is an emission nebula in the constellation of Auriga. At the center of the nebula is a hot O-type star, AE Aurigae, which is a runaway star that might have been ejected during the collision of two binary star groups. This nebula is about 5 light years across which is approximately 1,500 light years away.
