A few days ago we had a cold wave in Spain, Normally it is a bad thing, but astronomers allow us to enjoy an Olympian sky and low temperature, to be able to take photos free of noise. This was the case on the night of January 17, when we reached a temperature of -8.5ºC. Cold, yes. But exceptionally good! And that made it possible to photograph this splendid nebula. IC 2177 It is known as "Seagull Nebula" and is along the border between the constellations Monoceros and Canis Major.
