Description

The Coronary heart Nebula, proven within the photograph, is a big cloud of ionized hydrogen fuel that’s illuminated by the new younger stars embedded in it. The glow and form of the nebula are the results of intense radiation and stellar winds from a small cluster of stars close to the nebula’s core. This characteristic lies ~7,500 mild years away within the Perseus arm of our Galaxy and is situated within the night time sky close to Cassiopeia. With an approximate width of 200 mild years, this emission nebula is large and spans about 2.5 levels on the sky.
