The Eastern Veil Nebula (NGC 6992)
The veil nebula is the brightest part/s of the Cygnus Loop. The Cygnus loop is a reasonably dim supernova remnant of a star that exploded approximately 5000-8000 years ago. The remnants cover a 3 degree area of sky! Or 6 times the diameter of the moon. The Veil Nebulas distance is unknown though some estimates have it at about 1470 light years. One of my final un-comacorrected images hence the stretched stars in the corners.
