The Tulip Nebula Stewart Sharpless was added to his catalog in 1959 with Sh2-101. 70 light diameter and approx. It is 8,000 light years away from us in one of the foggy and star-rich regions of the Milky Way. The strong ultraviolet radiation from the nearby HDE 227 018 hot-star star ionizes the atoms that make up the nearby Tulip haze, which makes it radiate.
In addition to the visual experience of the picture, it is the bluish arc on the right side of the photo. This arc of ionized gas is a shock wave, which we know is a black hole (Cygnus X-1) from which we can see a material congestion of a relativist jet that breaks out due to material transfer in visual form. While black holes cannot be seen, the effects on their surroundings are still indirectly revealed.
