    Looks like an eye! - A dying star expels its outer layers, creating a planetary nebula . so called because it resembles a planet when seen with a small telescope. NGC 6369's blue-green ring marks the location where energetic ultraviolet light has stripped electrons from oxygen atoms in the gas.

    Carried into orbit by the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has taken hundreds of thousands of images of celestial objects: planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies. In this image, a dying star expels its outer layers, creating a planetary nebula. The blue-green ring marks the location where energetic ultraviolet light has stripped electrons from oxygen atoms in the gas. A vivid, high-quality Hubble image is giclée-printed on cotton canvas with UV-resistant inks and ... $100

    #Astronomy: The Little #GhostNebula, #NGC6369 A planetary nebula formed at the end of a star's life. Our own sun could produce something like this in as little as 5 billion years from now.

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

Wolf-Rayet Nebula is a nebula which surrounds a Wolf-Rayet star. There are different types of WR-nebula, based on their formation mechanism: 1.HII regions 2.ejecta-type nebulae 3.wind-blown bubbles 4.neutral hydrogen voids and shells (may be associated gas). The nebula shown is a 'wind-blown bubbles' type.

The first hint of what will become of our Sun was discovered inadvertently in 1764. At that time, Charles Messier was compiling a list of diffuse objects not to be confused with comets. The 27th object on Messier's list, now known as M27 or the Dumbbell Nebula, is a planetary nebula, the type of nebula our Sun will produce when nuclear fusion stops in its core. --http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap111227.html

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.

Finnish astrophotographer J-P Metsävainio observed IC 1396, making a gorgeous image of it. But he wasn’t satisfied just doing that. He’d been playing with making 3D images for some time, and decided this might be a good opportunity to make a model of the structure of the nebula, and then create an animated GIF of it.
