    This cosmic cloud cataloged as NGC 281, “playfully called the Pacman Nebula,” exists at about 10,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia

    Its beautiful sculpted columns and dense dust, captured in a “sharp composite image, was made through narrow-band filters, combining emission from the nebula's hydrogen, sulfur, and oxygen atoms in green, red, and blue hues.“

    This is an especially beautiful photo by Dave Lane. Worth the time to look it up.
