Taurus Molecular Cloud 1
(nearby star-forming region)
The Taurus Molecular Cloud 1 (TMC-1)
is a nearby star-forming region (or dense core)
which is in the constellation Taurus and is part of the Taurus-Auriga Complex.
Being near, 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 haven't convinced myself I've found consistent associations with
catalogs, but I've seen this:
