The Fossil Footprint Nebula  (足跡の化石) NGC1491

The nebula was a little darker than I expected before shooting.
A long time ago, I researched the origin of the name of this nebula, and in my memory, I remember that it was an elephant's footprint.
However, since it is this shape, it would be correct to leave it to the imagination of the viewer.
To me, it looks like a rose bud, not a fossil.

撮影前に予想していたより、ちょっと暗い星雲だった。
昔この星雲の名前の由来を調べてことがあり、自分の記憶ではエレファントの足形との記憶がある。
ただ、この形なので見る方の想像にお任せするのが正解であろう。
私には、化石ではなくバラの蕾に見える。
