Atlas Image, covering 5.0´ × 5.0´ on the sky, of the carbon star V713 Monocerotis. This star, also known as AFGL 935 and IRAS 06230-0930, is an example of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars which are surrounded by an expanding shell. The bright red color of the star in the 2MASS image indicates a general infrared excess due to carbon-rich dust formation in the shell. 1999 Sep 1-7
