America And The Pelican

America And The Pelican

Yes, they even have their nebula… I’m not telling you where the North America Nebula is or why we call it like that, it’s pretty obvious. It’s identified as NGC 7000. To its right is the Pelican Nebula, IC 5067 and IC 5070. The bird is a little harder to recognize.

These nebulae represent only part of the H-alpha complex found in the Cygnus. Ionized hydrogen is found in a large part of the constellation and even beyond.
