An odd couple of glowing gas clouds in the constellation of Dorado

This chart shows the southern constellation of Dorado (The Swordfish). Most of the stars that can be seen in a dark sky with the unaided eye are marked. The locations of the star formation regions NGC 2014 and NGC 2020 are indicated with a red circle. These glowing clouds can be seen faintly in a small telescope.
