The North American Nebula (NGC 7000) is located in the constellation of Cygnus at a distance of 2,000 LY.  The
southern half of the nebula is captured in the above image.  NGC 7000 is part of a large star forming region in Cygnus
and shines due to  the ionization of the surrounding Hydrogen gas and dust; a process fueled by nearby young hot stars.
