Woah! Can You Guess What This Nebula Looks Like?

The universe is amazing -- its size and majesty are some of the humanity's longest-running interests. Terry Robinson, a Canadian, who went to Melbourne, Australia, was able to capture a nebula that resembled something everyone is familiar with: the Statue of Liberty. 

Indeed, once you look closely and think about it, the nebula does indeed resemble the famous U.S. landmark that was a gift of friendship from the French. Looks like astrophotography is a stellar hobby!

Terry utilized a telescope in order to view the nebula and capture it using twenty eight exposures at 1,800 seconds each. Amazingly, the telescope was already ten years old.
