The star formation region RCW 106 in the constellation of Norma

This chart shows the small and inconspicuous southern constellation of Norma (The Carpenter’s Square). Most of the stars visible to the naked eye on a clear dark night are shown. This region is in the plane of the Milky Way and hosts the huge star formation region RCW 106 (marked with a red circle), which is mostly hidden behind thick dust clouds and not visible in a small telescope.
