The Rosetta Nebula (also known as the catalogue names NGC 2237 and C 49) is large, roughly circular H II region located on the edge of a giant molecular nebula in the constellation Unicorn. 

The nebula has an angular diameter of 1.3° and is 1600 parsec (about 5200 light-years) from the Solar System; It is approximately 100 light -years dimensions. 

At the center of the Rosetta Nebula is a brilliant open cluster known as NGC 2244; the blue stars of the cluster, which are part of the O8 association known as Monoceros OB2, emit ultraviolet radiation, which excites the nebula's gas causing it to emit red light. It is believed that the stellar wind from the group O and B stars expert pressure on the interstellar cloud causing a compression, followed by star formation; in fact, many Bok globes were observed in the region, believed to be the home of star formation.
