NGC 2024 - Flame Nebula

Introduction | Map | My Best Own Photos | My Own Observations | References || Appendix: My Own Photos

On this page I collect my observations of the galactic emission/reflection nebula NGC 2024 (Flame Nebula) in the constellation Orion.

 

Introduction

The galactic emission/reflection nebula NGC 2024 in the constellation Orion, is called Flame Nebula. It is located next to the belt star Alnitak; it is therefore easy to find, but difficult to observe because the bright star outshines it.

Size: 20' x 15' (Stoyan)
Distance: 1,200 light years (Stoyan)
Ranking: ** (Stoyan)
