The Veil Nebula is a diffuse nebula located in the northern constellation Cygnus, the Swan.
Also known as Witch’s Broom Nebula, Bridal Veil Nebula, Cirrus Nebula, or Filamentary Nebula, it constitutes the visible parts of the Cygnus Loop, a supernova remnant in Cygnus. It is located at an approximate distance of 1,470 light years from Earth.
In this wide shot you can see the three main parts: the Eastern Veil, the Western Veil, and Fleming’s Triangle (Pickering’s Triangle).
