The Rosette star formation region is located about 5,000 light years from Earth. X-rays reveal hundreds of young stars clustered in the center of a new image taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory, and additional fainter clusters on either side. The Rosette Nebula has long been a favorite target of amateur astronomers in the constellation Monoceros, the Unicorn, and can be occasionally seen by small telescopes from earth.
