NGC 1962-65-67-70 (LMC)

NGC 1962-65-67-70. (LMC)

A cluster of stars imbedded with nebulosity in the Large Magellanic Cloud (left). Circular arcs of nebulosity indicate ancient supernova activity, and simular arcs have been found in a number of galaxies. As in most areas in the LMC the many hot blue stars are a good indication of a very active star formation.

Several areas of emission nebulosity are scattered across the entire field of view.

The bright star to the left is a foreground member of the Milky Way.
