Sh2-114 (the Flying Dragon nebula) is a faint and rarely imaged nebula located in the constellation of Cygnus.
Sh2-114 is a cloud studied very little beyond its mere cataloging. It has a filamentous aspect, constituted by several overlapping arched strands. A semicircle shape with the concavity oriented towards the south and together with the nearby cloud Sh2-113, a bubble structure similar to a supernova remnant. However, no supernova remnants have ever been described in this region. Its complex, wispy structure is more likely the result of winds from hot, massive stars interacting with the magnetic fields in the interstellar medium.
There is no calculated distance from us.
There are other things catalogued in this area as shown in the mono annotated image. Sh2-114 is also known as LBN 347 but is embedded within the larger LBN 346 structure. There are a few faint galaxies also logged in the annotated image.
