Couple of facts trying to find.

Recommended Posts

As to the first question, I would say that there would be stars with exoplanets beyond the Crab Nebula. I do not know if any have been found in that small portion of sky or if a survey has even been made. Just as a statistic about the amount of stars in one arm of a galaxy I would think it is a sure thing.

Second question. I am going to presume you mean visible from the location under your avatar. The answer is no, the Crab Nebula is a winter target. Any object that can be seen all year round is called Circumpolar, for instance M81/M82 Bodes and Cigar.

Are any Solar systems with planets beyond the Crab Nebula in the Perseus arm?

Can the Crab Nebula be seen all year round?

Many Thanks.

Intriguing question. Do you have a reason in mind for asking?
