Congratulations to Rune Matthijssens (rune_astrostuff on Instagram) for winning our December 2020 Image of the Month competition. Rune created this beautiful Crab Nemula (also know as Messier 1) by using data from the Liverpool Telescope then editing the observation using SIRIL, GIMP and Lightroom mobile.
We have featured the Crab Nebula many times on the NSO website:
- Crab Nebula seen to erupt in a super-flare
- Examples of Well-known Supernovae
- Samuel Okoye - helped to discover the pulsar at the centre of the Crab Nebula
Why don't you search our archives and create your own Crab Nebula?
