Caption: Emission nebula IC 5068, optical image. The nebula appears red because hydrogen gas is being ionised by radiation emitted from the nearby young stars, causing it to give off red light. IC 5068 lies about 1900 light years from Earth, in the constellation Cygnus. This image was produced using the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, Mauna Kea, Hawaii, USA.
