The California Nebula (Picture of the Day)

NGC 1499: The California Nebula
The California Nebula is an emission nebula located about 1,500 light years away in the constellation of Perseus. This nebula is about 100 light years long. This nebula cannot be seen by the naked eye because of its very low surface brightness. It can only be viewed with a wide-field telescope under a dark sky.
