Star Eruption: Red Giant, Camelopardalis, Caught By Hubble Ejecting Gas (PHOTO)

Camelopardalis, or U Cam, is a star nearing the end of its life. As it begins to run low on fuel, it is becoming unstable. Every few thousand years, it coughs out a nearly spherical shell of gas as a layer of helium around its core begins to fuse. The gas ejected in the star’s latest eruption is clearly visible in this picture as a faint bubble of gas surrounding the star
