This video sequence pans across new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope observations of part of NGC 2174, also known as the Monkey Head Nebula.

NGC 2174 lies about 6400 light-years away. Hubble previously viewed this part of the sky back in 2011, and the space telescope has now revisited the region to celebrate its 24th year of operation.

This image was created using infrared observations from Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3.
