Its surface brightness is too low to be seen with the unaided eye. It represents the left overs of a supernova that exploded about 5,000 years ago. The nebula is so larger it is usually photographed in smaller parts. The more well-known are NGC 6960, known as the Western Veil, and NGC 6992, known as the Eastern Veil (shown in this image on the right and left respectively). It also includes NGC 6974, NGC 6979, NGC 6995 and several segments without NGC numbers.
