Here is an image of the brighter parts of IC63 (Right) & IC59 (Left). Both objects are part of the same gas cloud and are located in the constellation Cassiopeia, about 620ly from us. The nearby bright star Gamma Cas (not shown) is illuminating the nebulae. The picture is a composite of images taken through Ha, Luminous, Red, Green, & Blue filters.
