What others are saying

Giant Squid Nebula - the mosaic image, composed with narrowband data from the meter Isaac Newton Telescope, it spans some full moons toward the constellation Cepheus

The cosmic squid, could represent a spectacular outflow of material driven by a triple system of hot, massive stars, cataloged as seen near the center of the nebula. If so, this truly giant squid nebula would physically be nearly 50 light-years across.

A mysterious, squid-like apparition, this nebula is very faint, but also very large in planet Earth's sky. The remarkable nebula's bipolar shape and emission are consistent with it being a planetary nebula, the gaseous shroud of a dying sun-like star.
