The Medusa Nebula in the constellation of Gemini

This chart shows the famous zodiacal constellation of Gemini (The Twins). All the stars that can be seen easily with the naked eye on a dark clear night are shown. The position of the Medusa Nebula is indicated. This large and beautiful planetary nebula is unfortunately too faint to be seen in small telescopes and only reveals its structure in photographs.
