Introduction | Map | My Own Photos | My Own Observations | References

On this page I collect my observations of the galactic emission/reflection nebula NGC 1931 in the constellation Auriga.



NGC 1931 is a reflection and emission nebula and a star-forming region in the constellation Auriga in the northern starry sky, which is an estimated 10,000 light years away from the solar system.

In the immediate vicinity, there are the nebula Spider Nebula IC 417, the Flaming Star Nebula IC 405, the Tadpole Nebula IC 410, and the open star clusters M 36, M 37, and M 38.
