Sh 2-212 is located high above the galactic plane in the outer galaxy. It contains the star cluster NGC 1624
and may be embedded in the same CO cloud as Sh 2-211. It is associated with a 14 solar mass young stellar object visible near the ionisation ridge at the northwest edge of the nebula.
Avedisova concludes that Sh 2-212 is ionised by two uncatalogued stars, of classes O6.5 V and B0 V. These appear to be recorded in SIMBAD as MFJ SH 2-212 2
(O5.5) and MFJ SH 2-212 4
Associated with a 14 solar mass young stellar object visible near the ionisation ridge at the western edge of the nebula.[1
Contains the star cluster NGC 1624 and is located inside the same CO cloud as Sh 2-211.[2
