This cosmic flowery nebula is called Rosette after the red roses you are able to find in your backyard during spring. Inside the nebula lies an open cluster of young stars designated NGC 2244. They formed about 4 million years ago from the nebular material and their stellar winds are drilling a hole in nebula’s center, all of it insulated by cosmic dust and hot gases.

The Rosette Nebula spans about 100 light-years across, at about 5000 light-years away from Earth. It is one of the few deep space objects that can be seen with even a small telescope and a naked eye. Located towards the constellation of Unicorn near the famous Orion it makes its place to the list of brightest and most colorful nebulae in our galaxy.
