"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:30)
The Cone Nebula lies in the southern part of NGC 2264, the Christmas Tree cluster. The Nebula is an intense region of starbirth, a chaotic place where new stars are born inside a natal cloud and recently born, hot and massive stars buffet the nursery with intense radiation.
The nebula of gas and dust, lit by surrounding stars, is about 2,500 light-years away.
