Présentation (Wikipédia)

Les Dentelles du Cygne forment un rémanent de supernova dont l'explosion remonterait à une dizaine de milliers d'années. Elles se situent dans la constellation du Cygne. Le nom normalisé de ce rémanent est SNR G074.0-08.6, qui est quelquefois également appelé boucle du Cygne, terme issu de la traduction littérale de son nom anglais (Cygnus Loop).

La Grande Dentelle, la partie la plus brillante, se situe dans la région nord-est. Elle a la forme d'une virgule composée de filaments très fins s'étendant sur 1,2° suivant un axe NO-SE pour une largeur de l'ordre de dix minutes d'arc. Elle a été répertoriée par John Dreyer sous les désignations NGC 6992 (partie longiligne du nord-ouest), NGC 6995 (rebiquage au sud-est) et IC 1340 (extensions plus faibles de ce rebiquage).

 

The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It constitutes the visible portions of the Cygnus Loop (radio source W78, or Sharpless 103), a large but relatively faint supernova remnant. The source supernova exploded circa 3,000 BC to 6,000 BC, and the remnants have since expanded to cover an area roughly 3 degrees in diameter (about 6 times the diameter, or 36 times the area, of the full moon). The distance to the nebula is not precisely known, but Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) data supports a distance of about 1,470 light-years

n modern usage, the names Veil Nebula, Cirrus Nebula, and Filamentary Nebula generally refer to all the visible structure of the remnant, or even to the entire loop itself. The structure is so large that several NGC numbers were assigned to various arcs of the nebula.[6] There are three main visual components:

  • The Western Veil (also known as Caldwell 34), consisting of NGC 6960 (the "Witch's Broom", "Finger of God",[7] or "Filamentary Nebula"[7]) near the foreground star 52 Cygni;
  • The Eastern Veil (also known as Caldwell 33), whose brightest area is NGC 6992, trailing off farther south into NGC 6995 (together with NGC 6992 also known as "Network Nebula"[8]) and IC 1340; and
  • Pickering's Triangle (or Pickering's Triangular Wisp), brightest at the north central edge of the loop, but visible in photographs continuing toward the central area of the loop
