The Rosetta Nebula

The Rosetta Nebula

5,200 light years from Earth
Mass is about 10,000 Solar Masses
130 light years in diameter
This Nebula is quite well seen with binoculars or a small telescope looking toward the constellation of the unicorn. You must be near a dark site. To see the red in the nebula, you need to use photography.

The red is a product of the Hydrogen.
