The IC 443 is a Galactic supernova remnant in the constellation Gemini. Its distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth. IC 443 is thought to be the remains of a supernova occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago. The same supernova event likely created the neutron star CXOU J061705.3+222127, the collapsed remnant of the stellar core. IC 443 is one of the best-studied case of supernova remnant interacting with surrounding molecular clouds.
