Alphabet in Space - here's the E
Sometimes nebula in Space create patterns that look familiar to us.
This image - of a section of the constellation of Cygnus - shows the letter 'E'.
This is a patch of dark material which blocs out the starlight from the stars behind it.
There are many other patterns similar to this in the sky including a star cluster that looks like the number '37'.
The image was taken on Sunday 11th August at around 10.30pm from Adderstone Field in Dalby Forest near Pickering
Camera was a Canon 60Da with a 100mm lens at f/2.5 and an exposure of about 100 seconds at ASA 800
