The Tadpoles Nebula-IC 410. Located in the Constellation Auriga this dusty emission nebula is part of a much larger star forming area in our galaxy about 12000ly away. It is illuminated by the relatively young hot stars of open cluster NGC 1893 near it's center. Stellar winds from these large stars sculpt the structures we have come to know as the Tadpoles.
