Jellyfish Nebula 11 x 14 Print by Chris Martel using Kodak metallic paper with polystyrene backing. Frame and hanging materials not included.
The Jellyfish Nebula (also known as IC 443) is a Galactic supernova remnant in the constellation Gemini. It is located near the star Eta Geminorum. It’s distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth. It is roughly 70 light years in size. IC 443 may be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 – 30,000 years ago. The same supernova event likely created a neutron star which is the collapsed remnant of the stellar core. IC 443 is one of the best-studied cases of supernova remnants interacting with surrounding molecular clouds.
