Crescent Nebula

The Crescent Nebula (also NGC 6888, Caldwell 27 or Sharpless 105) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, about 5000 light-years away from earth. It is formed by the fast stellar wind from the Wolf-Rayet star WR 136 colliding and energizing a slower shell of matter previously ejected.
