Pelican Nebula. Optical image of the Pelican Nebula (IC 5067-5070). This is a large cloud of gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It is an emission nebula (HII region), glowing red as the hydrogen it contains is ionised by ultraviolet radiation from hot young stars embedded in it. Dark knots of dust are seen silhouetted against the nebula. The bright stars here are 57 Cygni (blue, upper left) and 56 Cygni (centre right)

Cosmology Emission Nebula Evolution Nebula Pelican Star Birth Stellar Formation Pelican Nebula

This print showcases the Pelican Nebula, a mesmerizing celestial phenomenon located in the constellation Cygnus. The image captures a vast cloud of gas and dust that stretches across the frame, creating an ethereal display of cosmic beauty. Illuminated by the intense ultraviolet radiation emitted by young, hot stars nestled within it, this emission nebula glows with a striking shade of red due to ionized hydrogen. Against this radiant backdrop, dark knots of dust stand out as intricate silhouettes, adding depth and contrast to the scene. Two prominent stars also make their presence known; 57 Cygni shines brightly in blue hues at the upper left corner while 56 Cygni graces the center right portion of the photograph. This stunning snapshot not only highlights nature's artistic prowess but also provides valuable insights into stellar formation and evolution. As star birth continues within this celestial nursery, we are reminded of our ever-expanding understanding of cosmology and our place in the universe. Displayed proudly on your wall or desk, this Science Photo Library print invites you to marvel at its awe-inspiring details while igniting curiosity about our vast cosmos.
