Veil Nebula


This picture may require a bit of explanation. Its not really about the bright star on the left of the picture. The nebula is the long thin cloud extending to the left of the star. Like so many deep space objects, it does not jump out of the picture and grab you. On the other hand, I find that this picture draws me to reflections on the scale and variety of our universe, to think on those bottomless questions about where we come from and what we are made of.
