M1, NGC1952, LBN833
A supernova (SN1054) remnant first recorded 1054AD. It is approximately 6,500 light-years from Earth and expanding at approximately 1,500 km/s.
This object is of particular interest to the study of stellar evolution.
At the center lies the surviving neutron star, a pulsar rotating approximately 30 times a second with a mass near that of our Sun.
The cloud structure consist primarily of helium and hyrdrogen ionized by stellar radiation.
