IC 63 is testament to the power of the intense radiation of stars. Caph, a bright star in the constellation of Cassiopeia, is located just outside the field of view towards the upper right. The onslaught of ultraviolet light from Caph makes this nebula glow particularly bright pink where hydrogen gas is being ionized. Soon, in the astronomically short time span of millions of years, this gossamer cloud will wither under the light of Caph and be completely blown away.
