Description

This view shows part of the huge Pegasus molecular cloud, just at north of Markab star (one of the corners of the Pegasus Square asterism). North is left in this orientation; the bright diffuse spike at the right edge comes from Markab. Particularly interesting is the 'W' shaped nebula at the lower right, that overlaps the edge-on galaxy NGC 7497.
