New Dimension: Nebulas Are Even More Amazing in by J-P Metsavainio. Pelican Nebula The Pelican Nebula can be found light-years away in the realm of the another cosmic bird: the constellation Cygnus, the swan. ((It's so pretty and amazing!

The Butterfly Nebula - NGC 6302 (also called the Bug Nebula, Butterfly Nebula, or Caldwell is a bipolar planetary nebula in the constellation Scorpius. The structure in the nebula is among the most complex ever observed in planetary nebulae.
This gallery shows four planetary nebulas from the first systematic survey of such objects in the solar neighborhood made with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. The planetary nebulas shown here are NGC 6543 (aka the Cat's Eye), NGC NGC 7009 and NGC 6826
Complex planetary nebulas form when a star uses up all of the hydrogen in its core -- an event our Sun will go through in about five billion years. Image: X-ray: NASA/CXC/IAA-CSIC/N.Ruiz et al, Optical: NASA/STScI Caption: Chandra X-Ray Observatory
Galactic Winds from Supermassive Black Holes Found Shaping Structure of the Universe June 2014 The supermassive black hole at the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 4151 has created a structure that astronomers call the "Eye of Sauron,"
This false-color composite image provided by NASA hows the Cartwheel galaxy as seen by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer's Far Ultraviolet detector (blue); the Hubble Space Telescope t (green); the Spitzer Space Telescope (red); and the Chandra (purple).
NGC also known as the Crescent Nebula, is a cosmic bubble about 25 light-years across, blown by winds from its central, bright, massive star. This colorful portrait of the nebula uses narrow band image data combined in the Hubble palette.
This image is NGC 6543 known as the Cat's Eye Nebula as it appears to the Chandra X-Ray Observatory and Hubble Telescope. A planetary nebula is a phase of stellar evolution that the sun should experience several billion years from now, when i.
