Taurus Molecular Cloud 1
(TMC-1, TMC, Taurus Molecular Cloud)
(nearby star-forming region)
The Taurus Molecular Cloud 1 (TMC-1, aka
Taurus Molecular Cloud or TMC)
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 low-precision coordinates apply.
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 |
