Eastern Veil Nebula 11 x 14 Print by Bruce Card using Kodak metallic paper with polystyrene backing. Frame and hanging materials not included.
The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust. This nebula was created when a star exploded into a supernova around 3,000 BC. The gas cloud has been expanding a little bit every year for the last 5,000+ years. Because this supernova remnant covers a large portion of the sky the picture only covers a piece of the eastern section of this nebula. The nebula is located approximately 1,470 light years away.
