NGC2014/2035 Nebulae in Dorado
NGC 2014 (left) and NGC2035 (right) are HII/OIII emission regions in the northern part of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).
NGC2035 sometimes is nicknamed the Dragon’s Head Nebula. The clouds of gas are glowing in different colors due to the energetic radiation given off by young stars.
Mixed in with the gas are dark clumps of dust that absorb rather than emit light, creating weaving lanes and dark shapes across the nebula (NGC2035).
