Lesser Curtain Nebula
The Lesser 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 trailing of it many millennia ago.
- The gases consist of about 90% hydrogen, with the remainder made up of helium, oxygen, nitrogen, and other elements. The clouds have a mean density of 102–106 particles/cm³. Its central regions are relatively denser.
A blue bright giant star lying a little over a parsec to trailing was its source:
