This richly detailed new view from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile shows the star formation region Gum 15. This little-known object is located in the constellation of Vela, some 3,000 light-years from Earth. The glowing cloud is a stunning example of an HII region. It also has a similarity to a more famous HII region, the Trifid Nebula (Messier 20).

This wide-field view captures the spectacular celestial landscape around the central object Gum 15. Among many other objects the star cluster NGC 2671 is visible a little to the lower left of centre and at the lower right of the image some of the filaments forming part of the Vela Supernova Remnant can be seen. This view was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.

This chart shows the location of the star formation region Gum 15 (red circle) in the southern constellation of Vela. This object looks very spectacular in photographs but it is very faint and glows mostly in the red part of the spectrum. As a result the cloud is very hard to see visually, although the many bright stars in this region will show up easily.
