Wispy Views of the Veil Nebula

Wispy Views of the Veil Nebula Astronomy Aviation & Space Exploration STEM Visual Arts

The Hubble Space Telescope took these wispy-appearing images of the Veil Nebula.

NASA tells us more about this image (and the nebula itself):

The Veil Nebula, left behind by the explosion of a massive star thousands of years ago, is one of the largest and most spectacular supernova remnants in the sky.

The image was taken with Hubble's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in November 1994 and August 1997.
