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!
