- The North American & Pelican Nebula are very large but dim nebulae in the constellation Cygnus. They trace out the shape of the No. American continent and the graceful maritime bird very near the bright star "Deneb", one of the brightest stars in the sky.

This region is in the heart of the Milky Way which is why the photo shows more stars than sky. You can see our "close up" photo of the Pelican nebula by clicking HERE.
