NGC 281 is 9,200 light years away in the constellation of Cassiopeia. It’s what is called an emissions nebula, a patch of ionised hydrogen (and other elements) gas that emits light as a result of being bombarded with radiation from a nearby star. These gaseous areas, the remnants of once dead stars are associated with star formation, and develop filaments (or fingers) where sufficient gas and dust particulates are of a high enough density to begin to cause a gravitational effect, sucking in more and more material towards them.

The Nebula was colloquially named Pacman due to it’s similarity with the late 70s arcade classic. WAKA WAKA !
