IC 405 (also known as the Flaming Star Nebula, SH 2-229, or Caldwell 31) is an emission/reflection nebula in the constellation Auriga.

 

It surrounds the irregular variable star AE Aurigae.

The nebula measures approximately 37.0' x 19.0', and lies about 1,500 light-years away.

It is believed that the proper motion of the central star can be traced back to the Orion's Belt area.

The nebula is about 5 light-years across. (WIKI)
