This year Christmas vibes come from the heavens.

The emission nebula created by the young, energetic stars in the cluster resembles a Christmas Tree. The hydrogen atoms are dying with the radiation from the stars and resurrecting as a glowing new type of hydrogen atom called hydrogen II.

Christmas Tree Cluster is in the constellation of Monoceros and is located about 2.300 light-years from earth.
