An emission nebula in Cassiopeia the Soul Nebula is an extremely active region of star formation. The wispy star forming regions are called W5 and are theorized to be areas of triggered star formation. The area is massive and spans an area equivalent to four full moons. It also features huge evacuated bubbles formed by the winds of young massive stars.
