The Web Nebulae

by Bill Arnett


If you look up at the night sky with your naked eye all you see is a black void with a few points of white light. But with a camera and a telescope an entirely different view unfolds in brilliant color and amazing detail. The pages that follow introduce a few of these spectacular objects. The study of the physics of many of these objects is of considerable scientific importance but their simple beauty can be enjoyed by all.
