Journey into the heart of the Heart Nebula IC1805and NGC 896.  This was the first part of the Heart Nebula to be discovered.  The nebula’s intense red output and its morphology are driven by the radiation emanating from a small group of stars near the nebula’s centre seen here. This open cluster of stars known as Collinder 26 contains a few bright stars 50 times the mass of our Sun, and many more much dimmer stars a fraction of our Sun’s mass.  This nebula is situated 7,500 light years from Earth, in the Perseus arm of our Galaxy in the constellation of Cassiopeia.
