dark pillar of gas against starry background

Dramatic Photo Shows Ominous Cone Nebula Like Never Before

A dramatic new image of the Cone Nebula shows the pillar-shaped cloud of cold, star-forming molecular gas and dust in unprecedented detail.

The nebula takes its name from its conical shape and is located in the turbulent 7 light-year region of NGC 2264, which is a site of star formation located about 2,500 light-years from Earth.
