Bubble Nebula (NGC 7635) | "It is literally a cavity, an evacuated region, left behind as the stellar wind from the star expands. It’s huge, roughly 10 light years across. That’s 100 trillion kilometers (60 trillion miles), hundreds of thousands of times the size of our entire solar system." | Dr. Phil Plait
