Location: Hubert, North Carolina, USA. 

This image of the Rosette Nebula in the Monoceros Constellation was shot from my back yard on Wednesday night January 13/14, 2010. The skies were clear and cold with some occasional high thin haze reducing the transparency, and temperatures dipped down into the low 20's which is cold for this area.
