Unveil the Remnants

The journey took me to one of the most well-known remains of a supernova that is said to have occurred over 8000 years ago. Meet the Veil Nebula (or portions of it) in the constellation of Cygnus. This stunning filamentary nebula is the visible portion of the infamous Cygnus Loop. There are several components to the Loop, but captured in this image are the Western Veil Nebula (to the top), and Pickering’s Triangle (to the left). This capture truly motivates me to keep on looking up to experience the amazing universe!
