Jellyfish Nebula


The Jellyfish Nebula, IC 443, is a supernova remnant about 5,000 light-years away in the constellation Gemini. The shock wave from the explosion glows as it collides with surrounding molecular clouds. The nebula's apparent diameter on the sky is larger than the full moon.

Compare the Jellyfish to other supernova remnants, the Crab and the Veil Nebulae.
