Wide-field view of NGC 2014 and NGC 2020 in the Large Magellanic Cloud

This wide-field view captures an odd couple in the constellation of Dorado (The Swordfish): NGC 2014 and NGC 2020. These two glowing clouds of gas, in the centre of the frame, are located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, one of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies. Both are sculpted by powerful winds from hot young stars.

This view was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
