Gamma Cassiopeia is a variable star with apparent magnitude currently about +2.15. It is easily spotted as the middle star in the "W" of the constellation Cassiopeia. Although it doesn't have an official English name astronaut Gus Grissom, who used it for navigation, gave it the sometimes used nickname "Navi" which is his middle name spelled backwards. Both nebulas are slowly being dispersed due to radiation from Navi.

This photo shows two faint nebula: IC 63 (also called the Ghost Nebula) to the middle left, and IC 59 (also called the Gamma Cassiopeia Nebula) to the upper right along with the bright star Gamma Cassiopeia. Gamma Cassiopeia is a variable star with apparent magnitude currently about +2.15. It is easily spotted as the middle star in the "W" of the constellation Cassiopeia. Although it doesn't have an official English name astronaut Gus Grissom, who used it for navigation, gave it the sometimes used nickname "Navi" which is his middle name spelled backwards.
