The Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635) - Imgur

APOD: 2012 August 16 - NGC 6888: The Crescent Nebula

The Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635) - Although it looks delicate, the 10 light-year diameter bubble offers evidence of violent processes at work. Above and right of the Bubble's center is a hot, O star, several 100,000 times more luminous and around 45 times more massive than the Sun. A fierce stellar wind and intense radiation from that star has blasted out the structure of glowing gas against denser material in a surrounding molecular cloud.
