The Gamow Nebula is a dark blueish emission nebula located high above the galactic plane (~1,000 ly). It is rimmed with a patch of thick and dark dust, presumably consisting of the compressed interstellar material after a supernova shockwave or similar event hit the area in the distant path. The stellar density is quite low at this galactic altitude, however there is a neutron star in range that may have been the cause of such a compression event. The Gamow Nebula is named after George Antonovich Gamow, a 20th century physicist and cosmologist, who worked extensively on the theories of star formation and stellar nucleosynthesis.
