These nebulas are known as the North American and the Pelican. Both are located near the star Deneb in the constellation Cygus.

Yeah, the one really does look like the Gulf coast but I'm about to go cross eyed looking for the bird in the "Pelican." They are spectacular.

I'm sure they don't look nearly as colorful in real life. Isn't long term exposure and color enhancement wonderful?

Weirdly, I really DO see sort of a map of North America in this.  I disgree with you on one thing, though --- I bet it's even more colorful and beautiful than any enhanced photo could ever show.  I really want to believe that.

It is a really fat pelican. Or maybe he is pelican road kill?
