Soul Nebula (aka Westerhout 5, Sharpless 2-199, LBN 667) is an emission nebula in constellation Cassiopeia. It spans a sky area four full moons wide and is about 6,500 light-years from earth. Like other massive star-forming regions, such as Orion and Carina, it contains large cavities carved out by radiation and winds from the region's most massive stars. Galaxies Maffei 1 and Maffei 2 are both nearby the nebula, although light extinction from the Milky Way limits their visibility.
