Mystery object Steve Steenwyk

GSC4955

This object is about 2.4 arc minutes in angular size. Since its distance is unkown, the actual linear size cannot be determined.

This is the second paragraph. It should contain a description of the image itself, perhaps relating it to points made in the preceding paragraph. What scientific content do you seen in the image? Explain the structures and colors. Calculate linear size (using the small angle formula, the distance you found from your research, and the angular size you observe in the photo).
