    North America Nebula Jigsaw Puzzle (500,1000-Piece)

    This new view of the North American nebula combines visible and infrared light observations, taken by the Digitized Sky Survey and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, respectively, into a single vivid picture.


    The nebula is named after its resemblance to the North American continent in visible light, which is represented in blue hues in this image. In red and green, infrared light can penetrate deep into the dust, revealing multitudes of hidden stars and dusty clouds. Only the densest dust clouds remain opaque, like the dark bands in the "Gulf of Mexico" area.


    Clusters of young stars (about one million years old) can be found throughout the image. Slightly older but still very young stars (about three to five million years) are also liberally scattered across the complex, with concentrations near the "head" region of the Pelican nebula, which is located to the right of the North American nebula (upper right, bluish portion of this picture).


    In this combined view, the visible part of the spectrum from the Digitized Sky Survey is represented in blues and blue-green hues. The Spitzer component contains data from the infrared array camera. Light with a wavelength of 3.6 microns has been color-coded green; 4.5-micron light is orange; 5.8-micron and 8.0-micron light are red.


    A jigsaw puzzle will deliver wholesome downtime for friends and family. These puzzles come in 500 and 1000-piece variations made with high-quality chipboard pieces. The 252 and 500-piece puzzles are ideal for children from the age of 9, while the 1000-piece puzzle is great for adults. Ships in gift-ready metal boxes for a show-stopping presentation.
