NGC 2237 (also known as The Rosette Nebula) is a large spherical
HII region located near one end of a giant molecular cloud in
the Monoceros region of the Milky Way.
The open star cluster NGC 2244 is closely associated with
the nebulosity, the stars of the cluster having been formed
from the nebula's matter.
