NGC 7635, also called the Bubble Nebula, Sharpless 162, or Caldwell 11, is a HII region emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It lies close to the direction of the open cluster Messier 52.
The bubble is created by the stellar wind from a massive hot star, SAO 20575, laying in a giant molecular cloud excited by the hot central star, causing it to glow.
In bottom left corner of the image there is Sh2-157 , also known as the Lobster Claw, which is part of the same hydrogen cloud. [Wiki]
