Sh2-170, also known as Little Rosette Nebula, is a small emission nebula with an embedded cluster of stars
in the constellation Cassiopeia. It lies in the Perseus arm of our galaxy around 7.500 light-years distant.
At its centre is a small, young star cluster. The bright star at the centre of the nebula is ionizing the
surrounding hydrogen gas and causing the nebula to glow.
