The Wizard Nebula

Cerceda (El boalo)

Situated only 8000 light-years away, the Wizard nebula surrounds an open cluster plenty of stars in formation.(Ngc-7380)
The interaction of stars with the gas and dust has created a shape that looks like some sort of wizard Merlin.
This image was taken in Hydrogen Alpha, Oxygen III and Sulfure II. The colors are not real colors, are typically named mapped colors that are representations of the channels used to obtain the image.
