The Prawn Nebula is an emission nebula located in the Sagittarius Arm of the Milky Way. It has an apparent magnitude of 7.31 and is around 6,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Scorpius, the region is about 250 light-years across, spanning over 3-4 full moons in the sky.

The nebula was discovered around 1900 and it is a stellar nursery that contains a large number of very hot, luminous, young stars, formed out of the surrounding gas.
