Planetary nebula

This planetary nebula, Mz3, is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun.  The 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible at the nebula's center, all imply  Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds that the central star's own spin and magnetic field are channeling the gas. (ESA, NASA's Hubble, JPL-CalTech)

The Helix Nebula is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation of Aquarius. Sometimes referred to as the “Eye of God”, it is one of the closest planetary nebula to Earth.

Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302 - Gas released by a dying star races across space at more than miles an hour, forming the delicate shape of a celestial butterfly. This nebula is also known as NGC 6302 or the Bug Nebula.

This object, called the Helix nebula, lies 650 light-years away in the constellation of Aquarius. Also known by the catalog number NGC 7293, it is a typical example of a class of objects called planetary nebulae. Discovered in the 18th century, these cosmic works of art were erroneously named for their resemblance to gas-giant planets.

The Glowing Eye of NGC 6751 -  Hubble spied a giant celestial "eye" glowing in the constellation Aquila. The nebula is a cloud of gas ejected several thousand yrs ago from the hot star visible in its center.   Planetary nebulae are shells of gas thrown off by Sun-like stars nearing the ends of their lives. The star's loss of its outer gaseous layers exposes the hot stellar core, whose strong ultraviolet radiation then causes the ejected gas to fluoresce as the planetary nebula.

The spectacular planetary nebula NGC 7009, or the Saturn Nebula, emerges from the darkness like a series of oddly-shaped bubbles, lit up in glorious pinks and blues. This colourful image was captured by the powerful MUSE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), as part of a study which mapped the dust inside a planetary nebula for the first time.
