The War and Peace Nebula Nebula, also known as the Lobster nebula, is an emission nebula and star-forming region in the constellation of Scorpius. Like the Cat's Paw Nebula, it covers a large area of the sky larger than that of the full moon, although being much fainter, it requires a large telescope and a very dark sky to see visually.
