An Astronomical Winter Wonderland For Your Enjoyment

Space has a few objects that resemble their Earth based counterparts.  I present a few of them for your enjoyment.

Snow Angel S106 Nebula

Cosmic Wreath of the star-forming nebula Barnard 3.

Celestial Ornament: Pulsar SXP 1062

Space Christmas Tree

The Cone Nebula in NGC 2264, near the bottom, looks like a Christmas tree in space.

Snowflake Cluster and Cone Nebula

The Snowflake Cluster (NGC 2264) is pretty self explanitory.

The Christmas tree cluster (also part of NGC2264) is also a pretty sight in the night sky.

Happy winter solstice, or what ever holiday you celebrate around the world this time of year.
