I am apart of the Summer Triangle! The Summer Triangle consists of three stars and forms an imaginary triangle in the sky. The Summer Triangle occurs during summer and the other two vertices are Vega and Altair. I am also the 19th brightest star!
My name ,"Deneb", comes from the Arabic word meaning "tail." because I represent the tail of Cygnus.
A nebula is often referred to as a "little cloud of dust." It is a cloud of dust, but it's also full of helium, hydrogen, and other iodized gases. The Nebula forms when parts of the interstellar medium collapse and the gravitational pull clumps it all together. It's usually large in size, dense, and has hundreds of light years in diameter.
Finally after the Supernova, Deneb will most likely die as a Black Hole. A Black Hole is an amount of matter in a small area. They form from the remains of a supernova. Scientist's do not see black holes, since they do not have any light coming out (thats why their called black holes.), but scientists can sense their presence. They sense their presence by looking for an area of space filled with a large amount of mass.
They are mainly found in the centers of galaxies and in binary stars ( a star in the same system orbiting the same point.)
