Nebula “Ghost of Cassiopeia” is part of a much larger region of the nebula
Powerful bursts of energy from stars can form eerie figures with long tails of gas and dust. One of the clearest examples is the “Ghost of Cassiopeia”, formally known as IC 63, located 550 light years from the constellation Cassiopeia, which is photographed by the Hubble telescope.
The ethereal glow of the nebula can remind people of events such as those were discovered by paranormal researchers.
Actually, it’s just hydrogen gas under ultraviolet radiation adjacent blue a giant star Gamma Cassiopeia, causing it to glow red. Blue color – from light reflected from a dust nebula.
Nebula IC 63 is not the only object under the influence of a blinding star, which unleashes as much energy as there are 34 thousand suns. Nebula “Ghost of Cassiopeia” is part of a much larger region of the nebula surrounding Gamma Cassiopeia, and measured approximately two degrees on the sky – about four times more than the full Moon.
Hubble took a picture of IC 63 in August 2016.
