This is the head of the Seagull Nebula. I'd need many fields to cover this one. I settled on its head. One estimate of its distance is about 3,650 light-years. Its located in southern Monoceros almost on the border with Canis Major. It is also known as Sh2-292. It was discovered by Isaac Roberts sometime in 1898.
