|Diffuse nebula in Perseus. This object could make a good substitute for
Trifid Nebula (M20) during the winter time. The emission portion of this
gas is glowing red whereas the star with the blue clouds around it are due
to scattered light (a reflection nebula). Visit the
site to see this nebula in the mircon wavelengths of light. The comparison
is truly fancinating.
