The Eastern Veil (NGC 6992) is a supernova remnant that is part of a larger complex that includes the Western Veil (NGC 6960). It is estimated that the supernova explosion occured about 10,000 years ago, before the age of recorded history.
During a star’s life, nuclear fusion produces elements such as oxygen, silicon, carbon, and iron. These elements are expelled into space during supernova explosions, later to become part of other stars, planets, and lifeforms like ourselves.
