Sh2-132 is an emission nebula located in the constellation Cepheus, it could be without a doubt the Lion King nebula, for me, the shape of this nebula is very similar to Rafiki's drawing of simba, in the animated film The Lion King, this nebula is located at 10700 al From us, it has been discovered that two Wolf-Rayet stars are responsible for heating and ionizing the gas of this nebula and making it shine, they are HD 211564 and HD 211853.
