The Veil nebula is the visible structure of a famous supernova remnant in constellation Cygnus. The structure is so large that several NGC numbers were assigned to various arcs of the nebula. There are three main visual components: The Western Veil, consisting of NGC 6960,   near the foreground star 52 Cyg. The Eastern Veil, whose brightest areas are NGC 6992 and NGC 6995. Pickering's Triangle, which can be found between NGC 6992 and NGC 6960.
