Stellar Cluster NGC 2093 in the LMC

Stellar cluster NGC 2093 in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a comparatively rich aggregate of young stars, a few tens of millions of years old. The hot temperature of the most massive of such young stars is responsible for its predominantly blue colour. The sky field measures 5.6 x 5.1 arcmin. North is up and East is left.
