NGC 7635 (10-13-2020)-3j.jpg

 

This is NGC 7635 is almost the inverse of a planetary nebula. Planetaries are expanding shells of gas shed from a dying star. The Bubble is formed from the intense radiation a hot blue star pushing out a sphere in the surrounding gas, making an empty bubble and setting the hydrogen aglow with a beautiful red color. The Bubble looks like a beautiful and delicate Christmas ornament on an unimaginable scale.
