The Western veil Nebula

On 06/07/2024 11:00 pm by Muafak Bisher| Desert of Negev

I’ve captured a supernova remnant in the constellation Cygnus, consisting of oxygen, sulfur, and hydrogen gas. the Western Veil Nebula is “an expanding cloud born of the death explosion of a massive star”. NGC 6960 (Caldwell 34) is often referred to as the Witch’s Broom as its delicate filamentary structure resembles this memorable shape.
