    The Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543, Caldwell 6) is a planetary nebula in the constellation of Draco. Structurally, it is one of the most complex nebulae known, with high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope observations revealing remarkable structures such as knots, jets, bubbles and sinewy arc-like features. In the center of the Cat's Eye there is a bright and hot star; around 1000 years ago this star lost its outer envelope, producing the nebula.

    #Astronomy: #NGC6543 Halo of the Cat's Eye. The Cat's Eye Nebula is one of the best known planetary nebulae in the sky. Its symmetries are seen in the very central region of this false-color picture, processed to reveal the enormous but extremely faint halo of gaseous material, overly across, which surrounds the brighter, familiar planetary nebula. Made with data from the Nordic Optical Telescope, Canary Islands.

Our eyes are as beautiful as the galactic nebulae. We're part of the universe as much as the universe is part of us.

Witch's Broom Nebula: The Witch's Broom Nebula is also part of the famous Veil Nebula complex, this being the western portion. The entire complex is the remnant of a powerful supernova explosion which occurred thousands of years ago, sending elements forged in the destroyed stars core into space. The bright star is 52 Cygni.
