The McNeil's Nebula: is a variable nebula discovered January 23, 2004 by Jay McNeil of Paducah, Kentucky. The newborn nebula was found while processing a wide field image of Orion's Messier 78 nebular region which was taken from McNeil's suburban backyard using a 3-inch refractor. Images taken of the area before September 2003 show absolutely no signs of the nebula. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
