The Veil Nebula, also known as the Cygnus Loop, is a large supernova remnant located in the constellation Cygnus. It is a cloud of gas and dust that resulted from a massive stellar explosion that occurred around 5,000 to 8,000 years ago. The explosion was so powerful that it ejected the outer layers of the star into space, creating a vast and intricate structure that we observe today. "With my narrowband interpretation, I attempted to dynamically mix hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur in a formula that would capture my concept of a fiery explosion while remaining faithful to the wavelengths emitted by the gases."
