Historical Context:
This image depicts the North America nebula in visible light. This nebula was named after North America because of the nebula's shape, which resembles the North American continent fairly closely. This can be seen on the left side of this image, as the bottom of the nebula looks like Mexico and, to the right of this area, the open space looks like the Gulf of Mexico.
