Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Curtain Nebula is a large dim group of gases and dark clouds with a length of around 7 parsecs coreward-rimward and a mean thickness of around 1 parsec.

  • It is classified as a reflection nebula and is primarily formed of ionized gases, thrown off by the star lying to spinward of it many millennia ago.
