New full reprocess of this popular object after to be published by me on natural colors palette on January.
This images is a result of a 65 hours of integration time using rgb and narrow band filters.
The Jellyfish Nebula (IC 443) is a supernova remnant located in the constellation Gemini.
It is situated about 5,000 light-years away from Earth and spans across an area of about 50 light-years in diameter.
The nebula got its name because of its tentacle-like structures, which resemble those of a jellyfish.
These structures are formed from the shockwaves created by the explosion of a massive star, which occurred about 30,000 years ago.
The explosion produced a blast wave that is still expanding outward, colliding with the surrounding interstellar gas and dust and creating the striking filamentary structure we see today.
The Jellyfish Nebula emits light across a broad range of wavelengths, from radio waves to X-rays.
The filaments of gas and dust are primarily made up of hydrogen, but also contain other elements such as oxygen and sulfur.
The nebula also contains a pulsar, a highly magnetized, rotating neutron star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation.
Observations of the Jellyfish Nebula have provided important insights into the processes that shape and influence the interstellar medium. It is a popular target for astronomers studying supernova remnants and their interactions with the surrounding interstellar material.
