The NGC 6445 was discovered on May 28, 1786 by William Herschel is an 11th-magnitude planetary nebula in Sagittarius. It was described as ‘pretty bright, pretty small, round, gradually brighter middle, mottled but not resolved’. There is some confusion over the naming of this nebula. NGC 6445 is sometimes referred to as the ‘Box Nebula’, but the Box Nebula is located at host star CSI-12-17112. Other sources refer to the Box Nebula as NGC 6309.
The nebula is 5000 light years from Sol and located between the Lagoon Nebula and Cinnabar Moth Nebula. The nebula is red-and-green, lit by neutron star CSI-20-17462 and two T-Tauri protostars. A single landable body provides rest and sight-seeing for the weary traveller.
