NGC 7380 – The Wizard Nebula

NGC 7380, located in the constellation Cepheus, is an open cluster of stars energizing the remaining gas and dust in the surrounding area. Over the next 100 million years, the nebula part of the cluster will eventually dissipate into nothingness, but the remaining stars will most likely last longer than our solar system.

NGC 7380 is 7,200 light years away, which means these images are capturing the cluster as how it appeared 7,200 years ago
