Object name: IC0447
Designation(s): IC0447, IC2169,
IC 447 is a reflection nebula in Monoceros. Its distance is rather vague but I'll say about 2,500 to 2,700 light-years. It was discovered by Edward Barnard -- twice. Once on January 24, 1894 and again sometime in the late 1890's and entered as IC 2169. The first discovery earned the IC 447 listing. It is sometimes known as Dreyer's Nebula, why I don't know.
