Pel­icane Neb­ula (IC 5067) in Cygnus

Pelicane Nebula (IC 5067) - Astrophotography Martin Rusterholz

The Pel­ic­an Neb­ula (also known as IC5070 and IC5067) is an HII region asso­ci­ated with the North Amer­ica Neb­ula in the con­stel­la­tion Cygnus. The neb­ula resembles a pel­ic­an in shape, hence the name. The Pel­ic­an Neb­ula is a large area of emis­sion neb­ula in the con­stel­la­tion Cygnus (the Swan), close to Deneb, and divided from its bright­er, lar­ger neigh­bor, the North Amer­ica Neb­ula, by a molecu­lar cloud filled with dark dust.
