Pelican Nebula

 An emission nebula about 1800 light years away in the constellation of Cygnus, part of the larger North America nebula complex.  This is a region of active star formation with gas clouds and young stars.  The darker areas are molecular clouds of cold, dark dust and the brighter, red regions are the result of the newly formed stars ionizing the gas, causing it to glow.
