Description

* Image acquisition by: Thomas Richter.

* Processing: Ruben Barbosa.

In the direction of the constellation of the Swan, near the star Deneb, lies a surprising nebula whose apparent familiar shape is enough to arouse our attention.

The resemblance to North America becomes impressive as we associate the dark spot with the Gulf of Mexico.

The well-defined wall of Mexico is a stellar maternity, where new stars are being formed at high rhythms.
