NGC 2029 – 2030

NGC 2029 – 2030.  (LMC)

NGC 2029- 2030 are 2 brighter emission nebulae in Dorado on the Northern edge of the Large Magellanic Cloud. A couple of large faint circular nebulae are the result of supernova going off in the distant past. One half of the field is scattered with bright blue newer formation stars that the LMC is well known for. The 3 or 4 bright for ground stars belong to the Milky Way galaxy.
