Larger.  A Multibrot set is a generalization of the Mandlebrot set.  A point C is in the Mandlebrot set if the sequence Z_n = (Z_n-1)^2 + C (Z_0 = C) does not go to infinity. The Multibrot set instead uses Z_n = (Z_n-1)^d + C, where d can be any real.  Here we vary d from 2 to 6.

The Monkey Head Nebula - NGC 2174

NGC 2174, also known as Monkey Head Nebula, is an H II emission nebula. H II regions are large, low-density clouds of partially ionized gas in which star formation has recently taken place. The short-lived blue stars forged in these regions emit copious amounts of ultraviolet light that ionize the surrounding gas. The Monkey Head Nebula is thought to be located about 6,400 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Orion and is associated with the open star cluster NGC 2175.
