The Rosette Nebula hangs in the sky like a holiday wreath in this Christmas Eve photo submitted to National Geographic’s Your Shot.
Located some 5,000 light-years away in the constellation Monoceros, the nebula takes its name from its rosebud-shaped folds, as seen in this image taken from Berkley, Michigan.
