The Center of a Rose - Stellar Winds in NGC 2237: The stars of this Nebula were born out of its dust & are closely associated with the Nebula’s features. The Open Star Cluster in the center (NGC 2244) has several O-type stars (super hot) that generate large amounts of radiation and send Stellar Winds into the Nebula. NASA’s Chandra space observatory was able to observe colliding Stellar Winds that reach temperatures of over 6 million kelvin, that’s more than 10 million degrees fahrenheit!
