Wandering through the realms of the cosmos, pondering its huge vastness

Happy Valentine’s Day from Space!

The Heart Nebula, IC 1805 resemble the silhouette of the heart from which takes its name. It lies some 7500 light years away from Earth, located in the Perseus arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes.

Happy Heart’s Day, everyone!🙂
