Phantom Streak Nebula (proper name NGC 6741) is a small blue-purple nebula in Aquila. The nebula appears to be rich in helium based on spectral lines. The central star is a standard Wolf-Rayet which is rapidly blowing off outer layers to form the nebula. Other than a companion M-class star, no other bodies are found inside the nebula. NGC 6741 was originally discovered by Edward Charles Pickering in 1882, and the origin of the name 'Phantom Streak' is obscure, as it was not given by Pickering.
