Emission Nebula in Dorado
Show on Sky Map
The emission nebula NGC 2032 forms part of a complex of nebulae within the Large Magellanic Cloud, and is surrounded by a number of other nebulous structures. Notable in this image is NGC 2040, a cluster associated with a ring-shaped supernova remnant directly to the east of the emission nebula. NGC 2032 is known colloquially as the Seagull Nebula because of its shape, but is not to be confused with IC 2177 in Monoceros, which is also known as the 'Seagull Nebula'.
