Taurus Molecular Cloud 1
(nearby star-forming region)
The Taurus Molecular Cloud 1 (TMC-1)
is a nearby star-forming region (or dense core)
in the constellation Taurus which is part of the Taurus-Auriga Complex.
Being close to us, it is of interest for study.
Taurus Molecular Cloud 2 (TMC-2) is another such region of interest
within the complex, but there are many.
It is large enough in the sky that these coordinates are approximate.
I've run across these correspondences regarding
designators for these
nebulae but I've also seen inconsistent information
so I'm not totally convinced:
| TMC-1 || aka LDN 1534 || |
| TMC-2 || aka LDN 1529 || aka Barnard 18 |
