The Tulip Nebula, or Sharpless 101 (Sh2-101) or the Cygnus Star Cloud is a H II region emission nebula located in the constellation Cygnus. It is so named because it appears to resemble the outline of a tulip when imaged photographically. It was catalogued by astronomer Stewart Sharpless in his 1959 catalog of nebulae. It lies at a distance of about 6,000 light-years (5.7×1016 km; 3.5×1016 mi) from Earth.@wikipedia

La nébuleuse de la tulipe se trouve à 8000 années-lumière en direction de la constellation du Cygne. L’image composite ( SHO ) ci-dessus cartographie l’émission de soufre ionisé (rouge), d’hydrogène (vert) et d’atomes d’oxygène (bleu). Le rayonnement ultraviolet de la jeune étoile HDE 227018 (près de l’arc bleu au centre de l’image) ionise les atomes et alimente l’émission de la nébuleuse de la tulipe.

The Veil Nebula itself is a large supernova remnant, the expanding debris cloud from the death explosion of a massive star. While the Veil is roughly circular in shape covering nearly 3 degrees on the sky in the constellation Cygnus, this portion of the eastern Veil spans only 1/2 degree, about the apparent size of the Moon. That translates to 12 light-years at the Veil’s reassuring estimated distance of 1,400 light-years from planet Earth. In the composite of image data recorded through narrow band filters, emission from hydrogen atoms in the remnant is shown in red with strong emission from oxygen atoms in blue-green hues.

The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It constitutes the visible portions of the Cygnus Loop (radio source W78, or Sharpless 103), a large but relatively faint supernova remnant. The source supernova exploded some 5,000 to 8,000 years ago, and the remnants have since expanded to cover an area roughly 3 degrees in diameter (about 6 times the diameter, or 36 times the area, of the full moon). The distance to the nebula is not precisely known, but Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) data supports a distance of about 1,470 light-years.

In modern usage, the names Veil Nebula, Cirrus Nebula, and Filamentary Nebula generally refer to all the visible structure of the remnant, or even to the entire loop itself. The structure is so large that several NGC numbers were assigned to various arcs of the nebula.[4] There are three main visual components:

The Western Veil (also known as Caldwell 34), consisting of NGC 6960 (the “Witch’s Broom”, “Finger of God”, or “Filamentary Nebula”) near the foreground star 52 Cygni;
The Eastern Veil (also known as Caldwell 33), whose brightest area is NGC 6992, trailing off farther south into NGC 6995 and IC 1340; and
Pickering’s Triangle (or Pickering’s Triangular Wisp), brightest at the north central edge of the loop, but visible in photographs continuing toward the central area of the loop.@wikipedia

Le Triangle de Pickering se trouve quant à lui au nord-ouest de la nébuleuse. Comme son nom l’indique en partie, il s’agit d’un triangle filamenteux allongé en direction du sud sur environ 45 minutes d’arc (pour une base de 25′ de largeur). Il partage avec la Petite Dentelle la désignation de NGC 6960. Le Triangle de Pickering se prolonge par un long filament de plus de deux degrés de long.

The North America Nebula (NGC 7000 or Caldwell 20) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, close to Deneb (the tail of the swan and its brightest star). The remarkable shape of the nebula resembles that of the continent of North America, complete with a prominent Gulf of Mexico. It is sometimes incorrectly called the “North American Nebula.
Cygnus’s Wall is a term for the “Mexico and Central America part” of the North America Nebula. The Cygnus Wall exhibits the most concentrated star formations in the nebula. @wikipedia

La nébuleuse de l’Amérique du Nord (ou NGC 7000 ou nebula North America) est une nébuleuse en émission située à environ 580 pc (1 890 a.l.) dans la constellation du Cygne, près de Alpha Cygni1. Elle a une taille environ 15 pc (48,9 a.l.)
La forme de la nébuleuse fait penser à celle de l’Amérique du Nord, d’où son nom.

The Pelican Nebula (also known as IC 5070 and IC 5067) is an H II region associated with the North America Nebula in the constellation Cygnus. The gaseous contortions of this emission nebula bear a resemblance to a pelican, giving rise to its name. The Pelican Nebula is located nearby first magnitude star Deneb, and is divided from its more prominent neighbour, the North America Nebula, by a molecular cloud filled with dark dust.

The Pelican is much studied because it has a particularly active mix of star formation and evolving gas clouds. The light from young energetic stars is slowly transforming cold gas to hot and causing an ionization front gradually to advance outward. Particularly dense filaments of cold gas are seen to still remain, and among these are found two jets emitted from the Herbig–Haro object 555. Millions of years from now this nebula might no longer be known as the Pelican, as the balance and placement of stars and gas will leave something that appears completely different. @wikipedia

IC 5067/70 est une très grande nébuleuse en émission (2,5 fois le diamètre de la pleine Lune). Elle se nomme aussi la ‘nébuleuse du Pélican.
Elle se trouve juste à côté de la très grande et célèbre NGC 7000 (la nébuleuse de l’Amérique du Nord). Elle doit être observée aux jumelles. Attention, sa puissante voisine atténue un peu la beauté de cette nébuleuse.

The Crescent Nebula (also known as NGC 6888, Caldwell 27, Sharpless 105) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, about 5000 light-years away. It was discovered by Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel in 1792. It is formed by the fast stellar wind from the Wolf-Rayet star WR 136 (HD 192163) colliding with and energizing the slower moving wind ejected by the star when it became a red giant around 250,000[3] to 400,000[citation needed] years ago. The result of the collision is a shell and two shock waves, one moving outward and one moving inward. The inward moving shock wave heats the stellar wind to X-ray-emitting temperatures.
It is a rather faint object located about 2 degrees SW of Sadr. For most telescopes it requires a UHC or OIII filter to see. Under favorable circumstances a telescope as small as 8cm (with filter) can see its nebulosity. Larger telescopes (20cm or more) reveal the crescent or a Euro sign shape which makes some to call it the “Euro sign nebula”. @Wikipedia

 

La nébuleuse du Croissant (NGC 6888) est une nébuleuse en émission située dans la constellation du Cygne, à environ 5 000 années-lumière2. Elle est issue des rapides vents solaires créés par l’étoile Wolf-Rayet WR 136, qui -par collision- ionisent les vents plus lents de cette même étoile lorsqu’elle était plus jeune et plus petite (de type géante rouge) il y a 400 000 ans. Le front de choc engendre ce que l’on nomme une bulle de Wolf-Rayet. @Wikipedia

IC 5146 (also Caldwell 19, Sh 2-125, and the Cocoon Nebula) is a reflection/emission nebula and Caldwell object in the constellation Cygnus. The NGC description refers to IC 5146 as a cluster of 9.5 mag stars involved in a bright and dark nebula. The cluster is also known as Collinder 470. It shines at magnitude +10.0/+9.3/+7.2. Its celestial coordinates are RA 21h 53.5m, dec+47° 16′. It is located near the naked-eye star Pi Cygni, the open cluster NGC 7209 in Lacerta, and the bright open cluster M39.[1][4] The cluster is about 4,000 ly away, and the central star that lights it formed about 100,000 years ago; the nebula is about 12 arcmins across, which is equivalent to a span of 15 light years @Wikipedia

IC 5146 est composé d’une nébuleuse en émission et un amas ouvert situés à environ 4 000 années-lumière de la Terre dans la constellation du Cygne1. Il a un diamètre d’environ 15 années-lumière.

The Orion Nebula (also known as Messier 42, M42, or NGC1976) is a diffuse nebula situated south[b] of Orion’s Belt in the constellation of Orion. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye in the night sky. M42 is located at a distance of 1,344 ± 20 light years and is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. The M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. It has a mass of about 2000 times the mass of the Sun. Older texts frequently refer to the Orion Nebula as the Great Nebula in Orion or the Great Orion Nebula.

The Orion Nebula is one of the most scrutinized and photographed objects in the night sky, and is among the most intensely studied celestial features. The nebula has revealed much about the process of how stars and planetary systems are formed from collapsing clouds of gas and dust. Astronomers have directly observed protoplanetary disks, brown dwarfs, intense and turbulent motions of the gas, and the photo-ionizing effects of massive nearby stars in the nebula. There are also supersonic “bullets” of gas piercing the hydrogen clouds of the Orion Nebula. Each bullet is ten times the diameter of Pluto’s orbit and tipped with iron atoms glowing bright blue. They were probably formed one thousand years ago from an unknown violent event.

La nébuleuse d’Orion, aussi connue sous le nom de M42 ou NGC 1976, est une nébuleuse en émission/réflexion située au cœur de la constellation d’Orion.

C’est la nébuleuse diffuse la plus brillante : elle est visible à l’œil nu dans un ciel nocturne sans pollution lumineuse et peut être facilement vue avec une paire de jumelles. Elle couvre dans le ciel une zone de 66 × 60 minutes d’arc ; c’est-à-dire quatre fois plus que la pleine lune.

La nébuleuse d’Orion est la partie principale d’un nuage de gaz et de poussières appelé le « nuage d’Orion ». Ce nuage s’étend sur près de la moitié de la constellation et contient aussi la Boucle de Barnard et la célèbre nébuleuse de la Tête de Cheval.

La nébuleuse a une taille d’environ 33 années-lumière. Il aura fallu attendre 2007 pour s’apercevoir que la nébuleuse se trouve à environ 1 350 années-lumière de la Terre au lieu des 1 500 années-lumière jusque-là estimées. Elle contient un amas ouvert très jeune contenant de nombreuses étoiles.
