Almost all nebulas you usually observe with a telescope are located in our galaxy, the Milky Way.
But not this one! This nebula is not in our galaxy. It is far away from our solar system, far out of our Milky Way - it is located in a neightbour galaxy called Messier 33 being almost 3 million light years away from us. Incredible but true.
