This stunning image is part of the diffuse emission Gamma Cygni nebula, otherwise known as The Butterfly Nebula.
Astrophotographer Terry Hancock took this image as part of his mosaic of the Gamma Cygni region. The image was taken from his backyard Stargazer Captures Amazing Close-up of Butterfly Nebula (Photo) Icon1 observatory in Fremont, Michigan on May 29. "We have had some wonderful clear skies over here in West Michigan in the past Stargazer Captures Amazing Close-up of Butterfly Nebula (Photo) Icon1 week," Hancock wrote in an email to Space.com.
In this image, one can see the Gamma Cygni Nebula or IC1318A in the upper left. The namesake star of the region, the Gamma Cygni, sit amid the constellation of Cygnus the Swan. Although it sits at a distance of 1,800 light-years, this young star is an extremely bright supergiant. A light-year is the distance light travels in one year, or about 6 trillion miles (10 trillion kilometers).
