The open cluster NGC 2467 is a small but bright patch embedded in a rich star field. It contains 50 stars from 9th magnitude embedded in an emission nebula. The NGC 2467 complex lies about 17,000 light-years away.

The NGC2467 nebula is more prominent on its west side around an 8th magnitude blue star, that excites the surrounding of nebula. The surface brightness at the center of the nebula is so high that it is visible in binoculars.

NGC 2467 is an extremely active stellar nursery that glows in deep reddish tones. Young stars are emitting hot radiation, exciting the nearby gas and causing it to glow and revealing denser gas and dust clouds. Dust lanes and dark globules mark sites of future star formation
