The Cone Nebula lies in the southern part of NGC 2264, the Christmas Tree cluster, with which is shares the NGC designation. This is a rich region with much nebulosity and many interesting objects. The Christmas Tree cluster has at its base the variable star S Mon (also known as 15 Mon). If viewed with this northern portion at the bottom, the stars of this cluster form the outline of a Christmas Tree, topped by the 7th magnitude star HD 47887.
