IC1318 Butterfly Nebula
The Butterfly Nebula is part of the Sadr region of emission gases. Each of the wings of the butterfly are about 50 light-years across and lie about 3700 light-years from Earth. Sadr, also called Gamma Cygni, is the bight star at the right. Open cluster NGC6910 can be seen at the top-right, and dark nebula B 347 appears as a small arrow in the center of the left wing of the butterfly. It should be noted that tiny planetary nebula NGC6302, the Bug Nebula, is sometimes also called the Butterfly Nebula. North is at the top.
