The “Cygnus Wall” is part of the North American nebula in the constellation Cygnus (The Swan) at a distance of 1,500 light-years. This molecular cloud is also the home of many new stars which were formed from its material leaving an area of erosion now illuminated by their light. http://owlmountainobservatory.com/
