The magnificent Hubble portrait shows the star forming region close to our galaxy, the giant red nebula (NGC 2014) and its smaller blue neighbour (NGC 2020) reside in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way located just 163,000 light years away. It is nick named 'Coral Reef' because the nebula resembles the underwater world.
