Cone Nebula and Christmas Tree Cluster. This area of the night sky is known as NGC 2264. It contains the Cone Nebula (far left) and the bright blue stars of the Christmas Tree cluster. The brightest star is S Mon, while the region just below it has been referred to as the Fox Fur Nebula because of its colour and texture. The Cone nebula is 7 light years in length, and lies 2700 light years from Earth in the constellation Monoceros.
