Nebulosity around NGC 3572 in Narrowband
This is a pretty cool target – near the great Carina Nebula but not often photographed by itself.
It’s a close neighbour to the star cluster NGC 3532, also known as the Pincushion, Football or Wishing Well Cluster.
The nebulosity resembles a gas flame in space!

About this Nebula
NGC 3572 is a star cluster situated near a molecular cloud in Carina about 6500 light year distance. These stars are young and massive and are only expected to live a few million years and explode as supernovae. These stars have shaped the clouds into amazingly convoluted shapes by their powerful radiation.(Eso)
