Today is Star Wars day and a nebula named after baby Yoda appeared



May 4 marks the day celebrating Star Wars (may the fourth be with you) so a nebula in the likeness of the famous baby has appeared.

Officially named NGC 2359, it is an emission nebula in the constellation of Canis Major, resembling Baby Yoda.

Located 12,000 light-years away and needing a telescope to see it only on or close to the Southern Hemisphere.
