On Saturday, the NASA / ASA Hubble Space Telescope repeated the exotic images of the Veil Nebula and brought more stunning features and intricate details to the shattered remains of an ancient supernova explosion. A larger supernova called the Cygnus Loop that was 20 times the mass of the Sun nearly 10,000 years ago. And recently the space agency has expanded the details of one of the remnants of the best-known supernova, drawing its name from its delicate and ornate passion structures.
“The veil nebula is located about 2,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Cygnus, which makes it a relatively close neighbor in astronomical terms,” NASA explained, adding that at the time the original image was taken only a small part of the nebula was captured. Covers the space like six full moons in the sky when viewed from Earth and is about 2,100 light-years away in the constellation of Cygnus.
“The fast-moving wave from the ancient explosion plows into a wall of cooler, denser interstellar gas, emitting light. The nebula lies along the edge of a large, low-density gas bubble blown into space by the dying star.
Created from the death of ‘Massive Star’
“The Veil Nebula recognizes that surprising astronomical beauty can result from stellar violence,” NASA wrote in an Instagram post, sharing the mystical photo. Created by the death of a massive star, NASA explained, adding that these stars had a short life expectancy and they died young, ending their lives in catastrophic energy release. The new close-up improves the properties of the gas windings, which scientists believe are remnants of what was once a 20 times more massive star than our sun. The iconic image of the Veil Nebula also appears in Hubble’s Caldwell Catalog, a collection of astronomical objects visible to astronomers in the night sky.
