NGC6992 - Network Nebula

Enlarge to Full Size

Date: 7/29/2005
The Veil Nebula, encompassing several NGC numbers, is a large circular arc of nebulosity resulting from a supernova explosion around 20,000 years ago. It lies in the Constellation Cygnus approximately 2,500 light-years distant. Astronomers now think that a portion of the Veil outside the circular pattern of the rest of the nebula may actually result from a second supernova explosion in the area.
