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.“
