Second Quadrant (180° - 90°)

Submitted by Kevin Jardine on 1 February, 2008 - 10:46

The Second Quadrant (180° - 90°), also called the western outer galaxy, is dominated by the Cassiopeia arc, the most visible part of the Perseus arm in the outer galaxy.

It also includes many other interesting regions, including the Camelopardalis molecular cloud complex and the Cepheus star formation region.

I'll be expanding this summary section over time.
