The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant and pulsar wind nebula in the constellation of Taurus. Corresponding to a bright supernova recorded by Chinese astronomers in 1054, the nebula was observed later by English astronomer John Bevis in 1731 (Wikipedia). It's distance from earth is about 6500 light years. (The bluish streak originates from a spike genrated by the nearby star HD37013).
