The Crescent Nebula is a famous emission nebula located in the constellation of Cygnus in the Milky Way region. It is about 5,000 light-years from Earth.
It contains hydrogen atoms (shade of red) and the shade of blue is made up of oxygen atoms that surround hydrogen. The diameter of this amazing gas bubble is about 25 light-years.
The central star of the object (Wolf-Rayet WR 136) is part of a group of very large massive stars, extremely hot. In the future, it could result in a spectacular supernova explosion.
