Description

The Vela Supernova Remnant (SNR) is the structure resulting from the explosion of a supernova 11,000–12,300 years ago. The field shows shocked filaments of glowing gas, embedded in a large Supernova Remnant, the Gum Nebula (Gum 12).

This image is my first try at a mosaic, and it is made of 4 separate images, all taken using an H-Alpha Filter.
