Description

Moderately obscure Sh2 object. Please see link regarding name an stars that energize the HA.

http://galaxymap.org/cat/view/sharpless/132

Citation from above link: This giant HII region, which I call the Dragon nebula, is ionised by two WR stars (WR 152 and WR 153) and OB stars in several embedded clusters. WR 153 and an O 8.5 star lie near the middle of the radio shell associated with this nebula.

Available distance estimates locate Sh 2-132 in the Cep OB1 association within the Perseus arm.

This nebula is also prominent in radio and infrared images.
