North America Nebula. Located 3500 light years from earth, it is shaped like the continent of North America. The red glow is the typical color emitted by hydrogen gas. The bright star close to the nebula is Deneb, a blue giant, 1500 light years from earth.

Deneb is also one of the stars that form the summer triangle (together with Vega and Altair). This familiar triangle currently resides high in the sky after sundown.
