Description:

NGC 2451 is an open cluster in Puppis. Actually two open clusters that lie along the same line of sight. The respective clusters are labeled NGC 2451 A and NGC 2451 B, and they are located at distances of 600 and 1,200 light-years, respectively. I love these twinkling stars. It's very close to visual observation. More information: https://www.skypixels.at/ngc2451_info.html
