Description

Sh2-88 area. First saw this from Adam Block some years ago...

Copied from Wiki FYI... I just think it's cool.

Sharpless 2-88 or also known as Sh 2-88 is a region of diffuse nebulae northwest of the two nebula knots Sh 2-88A, Sh 2-88B1, and Sh 2-88B2, which are all associated with Vulpecula OB1. This nebula is a HII type diffuse nebula excited by the type O8 star BD +26°3952. The nebula is ionized by an O8.5 to 9.5V star. The structure been interacting with a HI interstellar bubble shaped by the stellar winds of BD +26°3952 and the blue O8.5II(f) star BD +25°3866. Overall, its actual structure is located 2.4 kiloparsecs away, at 23 × 15 parsecs in radius, a dynamical age of 1.5 million years, and a mass of 1,300 Msolar. It's has an rms electron density is 9 cm–3.
