North America, Pelican & IC 5068 Nebulae | Ha-Oiii
The North America (NGC 7000), Pelican (IC 5070) & IC 5068 Nebulae
Massive structures of hot gas and cold dark cosmic dust structures, form a spectacular view to a piece of sky like no other. The image depicts three large nebulae, distanced around 1,600 light years away from Earth, with The North America to the left, the Pelican to the right-top and IC 5068 (Sometimes called "T-Rex") to the right-bottom.
Data was captured in Bortle 4, backyard of a dear friend, in the Israeli Arava Region.
