The California Nebula - What's California doing in space? Drifting through the Orion Arm of the spiral Milky Way Galaxy this cosmic cloud by chance echoes the outline of California on the west coast of the United States. Our own Sun also lies within the Milky Way's Orion Arm only about 1500 light-years from the California Nebula. Also known as NGC 1499 the classic emission nebula is around 100 light-years long. On the featured image the most prominent glow of the California Nebula is the red…

A nebula from Latin: "cloud"is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way.
