Veil West

Enlarge to Full Size

Date: 8/21/2005
The Veil Nebula is the spectacular result of a supernova explosion that occurred about 30,000 years ago somewhere towards the centre of the two main arcs, designated NGC 6992 for the eastern arc and NGC 6960 for the western arc, which may been seen close to the bright magnitude 4 star 52 Cygni. The fainter central part is designated NGC 6979. The Veil Nebula takes its name from the delicate filamentary structure of the expanding gas shells which appear in different colours owing to temperature variations in the gaseous elements that comprise the shell structure.
