The star formation region NGC 2035 in the constellation of Dorado

This chart shows the southern constellation of Dorado (The Swordfish, sometimes referred to as a Dolphinfish). Most of the stars that can be seen in a dark sky with the unaided eye are marked. The location of the star formation region NGC 2035 in the Large Magellanic Cloud is indicated with a red circle. The nebula itself appears as a faint fuzzy patch in amateur telescopes, although the bright stars associated with this region can be very easily seen.
