A New Nebula Discovered By NASA Named as 'The Star Factory"

The nebula was snapped earlier this year by the ESO's Very Large Telescope

The picture was released on Thursday by the European Southern Observatory (ESO)

At about 2,500 light-years from Earth, the Cone Nebula is relatively close to us, which makes it easy to observe

To find the Cone Nebula, scientists turned their telescope towards the Monoceros (unicorn) constellation

This Telescope is situated in the Atacama desert in Chile

The Cone Nebula is part of a star-forming region of space, NGC 2264, about 2500 light-years
