California Nebula

The California Nebula, or NGC 1499, is the subject of today's astronomy picture of the day. If you squint you can just about convince yourself that it looks a bit California-shaped. Not as easy to see as the Sombrero Galaxy or the Horsehead Nebula in my opinion. It also pays to follow the links in APOD as they sometimes take you to strange places.
