WISE Cone Crop

A closer view of the Cone Nebula proper. This time north is up and the Cone can be found by seeking the bright, spiky, red star below center and looking just below it. The Cone doesn't stand out nearly as famously in infrared light. It actually blends in quite well with its surroundings.
