See more sights in the Swan
Enjoy a variety of stunning nebulae in Cygnus.
May 22, 2006
|After you've seen the beautiful Veil Nebula (NGC 6960/92/95) and the popular North America Nebula (NGC 7000), take a look at some of Cygnus' other striking nebulae. Red emission nebulae, blue reflection nebulae, and the supernova remnants known as planetary nebulae abound in the constellation of the Swan. A clear, moonless night, a moderate-size telescope, and some time are all you'll need to continue your nebula search.|
