Description

This picture shows Messier 27, or the Dumbbell Nebula, the rest of a star which stopped nuclear fusion and collapsed to a white dwarf about 10-15 thousand years ago. Before collapsing, the star ejected the outer shell of material from its surface, which now glows in tones of blue and pink.
