This lovely collection of
nebulae in the LMC includes a
probable supernova remnant
towards the left with a
quasi-oval filamentous
appearance (N59B, aka NGC
2035), the brighter central/right
zone with emission/reflection
components (N59A, aka NGC
2032/2029), as well as the
smaller circular area towards
the top (N59C). The area in
aggregate is sometimes
referred to as the Seagull
Nebula, not to be confused with
a nebula of the same name in
the northern hemisphere, IC
2177.
