Eastern Veil

Not much time on this one - way too many clouds but definitely worth a post. This is the Eastern Veil nebula (yes their is a western veil). The nebula is made up of the expanding fragments of an explosion about 5000 years ago. It is located some 1440 light years from here.

The gods smiled on me last night and gave me 32 minutes of clear skies! NGC7000 the North America Nebula. Can you guess why they called it that?
