|Description:||This emission nebula is known as 'The Rosette Nebula'. It is a roughly spherical shell, several hundred light years in diameter. It appears to be a 'doughnut hole' shape because we see it through a hole in the spherical shell. Click here to see a full size crop of the center of this nebula.|
