I’ve been doing this for 10 years now and I’m still finding crazy new things to shoot. This “cometary globule” is barely visible to visual astronomers and wasn’t even seen and designated as such until 1976 when photographic plates revealed its nature. The weird thing about it is how far away from the galactic plane it is. It’s a star forming nebula, but floating in the middle of nowhere which is considered quite rare. Kanipe writes that it’s “like a piece of the Milky Way that has somehow detached itself and floated away like a child’s escaped balloon.”
