This nebula is known as a bipolar double-shell nebula planetary nebula. Whew, try saying that 5 times fast.
The sun like star is surrounded by gas that composed the outer
layer. It is some 2,870 light-years from here. Discovered
by William Herschel in 1787, in Slough, England. While you can
only see the blue in our 8 inch telescope, the Hubble site has a very
nice image of this planet nebula It is amazing!
