Simeis 147 is also known as the Spaghetti Nebula and is catalogued as Sharpless 2-240. It is one of the faintest nearby supernova remnants and is thus very difficult to photograph. It is the diameter of six full moons and at 3,000 light-years distance that makes it about 150 light-years wide. When the central star went supernova some 50,000 to 100,000 years ago, it left a spinning pulsar at the center.
