What powers are manifesting themselves in the Wizard’s Nebula? Gravitation, strong enough to form stars, and stellar winds and radiation, powerful enough to create and dissolve cliffs of gas. Located only 8,000 light years away, the Wizard’s Nebula surrounds the developing open cluster NGC 7380. Visually, the interplay of stars, gas and dust has created a shape that for some evokes the silhouette of a medieval sorcerer. The region is active in star formation and extends some 100 light years, giving it an apparent size in the Earth’s sky slightly larger than that of the Moon. The Sorcerer’s Nebula can be seen with a small telescope in the constellation Cepheus. Although this Nebula probably has a life expectancy of only a few million years, some of the stars that have formed there will live longer than our Sun.
