I recently got the "Night Sky" app for my iPhone..
It is a decent app as I enjoy night sky gazing, and it really is a great reference tool for identifying all the many different lights in the evening sky..
It has many features and I have explored them over fairly well, but I find myself unsatisfactorily curious about one specific feature and would very much like the assistance of the expertise available here at my internet home..
The app is astronomy type apps where you point your phone up into the sky (or any direction really) and it gives you the sky chart in realtime including all major and minor celestial bodies both natural and man made....
Now, to my question...
There is a feature that apparently affects the background and is controlled by a light spectrum slider with "radio waves" to the far left and "ultraviolet " to tu far right... The Default is visible light, and this is where I see the image only..
Is this a nebula? If so, which one?
Is this just background "art" of the milkyway?..
It interests me because of the ghostly face..
