Astronomy Picture of the Day: 11/18/13 - The Great Turkey Nebula

For those of you in the United States, FQTQ is wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving. It seems like there is a nebula for every occasion, and Thanksgiving is an exception to that rule.

This is the Great Turkey Nebula, and it"s located very far away from us. Unfortunately, the Turkey Nebula doesn’t actually exist. This is (however) a picture of a real nebula that has undergone a little photoshoping to bring out the turkey look.

Can you name which nebula this really is? You can follow the link to find out, but I will warn you. Once you know the answer, you’ll never look at the original the same.
