Anticenter Shell

(Anticenter Superbubble)
(nebula at edge of Milky Way)

The Anticenter Shell is an HI supershell directly opposite the Earth from the galactic center (i.e., in the direction termed the galactic anticenter) which emits the 21-cm line. Its dimensions are unclear as it resides in the zone of avoidance.
