IC 1871: Inside the Soul Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Mark HansonExplanation: This cosmic close-up
looks deep inside the Soul Nebula
. The dark and brooding dust cloud
s on the left, outlined by bright ridges of glowing gas, are cataloged as IC 1871. About 25 light-years across, the telescopic field of view spans only a small part of the much larger Heart and Soul
nebulae. At an estimated distance of 6,500 light-years the star-forming complex lies within the Perseus spiral arm
of our Milky Way
Galaxy, seen in planet Earth’s skies toward the constellation Cassiopeia. An example of triggered star formation
, the dense star-forming clouds of IC 1871 are themselves sculpted by the intense winds and radiation of the region’s massive young stars. The featured image
appears mostly red due to the emission of a specific color
of light emitted by excited hydrogen gas
