Witch Head Nebula Space Pendant, NASA, STSci Sky Survey
As the name implies, this reflection nebula associated with the star Rigel looks suspiciously like a fairytale witch. Formally known as IC 2118 in the constellation Orion, the Witch Head Nebula glows primarily by light reflected from the star. The color of this very blue nebula, which we’ve enhanced and modified to green, is caused not only by blue color of its star, but also because the dust grains reflect blue light more efficiently than red. A similar physical process causes Earth's daytime sky to appear blue.
Made in the U.S.A. 1” x 1” Pendant on 18” cord (20” cord with included cord extender). Please note as these are hand made and very slight variations may occur as well as an additional day or two of processing might be required.
