IC 1805: The Heart        Distance: 7,500 Light Years        Located in the Perseus arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes. The nebula is formed by plasma of ionized hydrogen and free electrons. The nebula’s intense red output and its configuration are driven by the radiation emanating from a small group of stars near the nebula’s center.
