Caption: Nebula NGC 1760, optical image. NGC 1760 is an star-forming complex nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way. The overall complex of glowing gas and stars is known as N11 while the central cluster of hot young blue stars is know as NGC 1760. The complex expanding shells of gas have likely formed from multiple generations of hot O and B type stars and their supernovae. N11 measures over 1000 light years across.
