NGC 2359, better known as the Thor's Helmet nebula, is actually more like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's center sweeps through a surrounding molecular cloud. The central star is an extremely hot giant Wolf-Rayet star, thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution. It lies about 15,000 light years from Earth in the constellation Canis Major, measuring about 30 light years.

Australian astronomers find the oldest Star: 13.6 billion years old, making it the most ancient star seen. It lies in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, at a distance of around 6,000 light years from Earth. story dated: 10 Feb 2014
