IC63 and IC59

Around the bright star Gamma Cassiopeia, Navi, lay a ghostly nebular complex. Gamma Cassiopeia is currently evaporating two nearby clouds of gas- IC 59 (left) and IC 63 (right). The picture taken November 28, 2010 shows the leading edges of these clouds glowing strongly in the intense bath of radiation from this hot star. Hints of bluish light behind the front lines of these nebulae show a bit of scattered light.
