Object name: IC0466
IC 466/Sh2-288 is a small emission nebula in central Monoceros. I found three different distance estimates. Two say 3000 parsecs (about 10,000 light-years) and one says 4100 parsecs (13,000 light-years) give or take 6500 light-years which more than overlaps the two other estimates. Several sources say it is illuminated by an O9V star but not its designation or coordinates. Is it the blue star to the northeast, is it the star that appears to be in the center of the nebula or is it some other star? I couldn't find an answer to that.
