The Veil Nebula was discovered visually by William Herschel in 1784 with his 18-inch reflecting telescope. The visible portions of the Veil Nebula appear to be segments of an expanding gas cloud. The gas cloud is believed to be the remnant of a supernova explosion, possibly 30,000 to 40,000 years ago.
