Caption: Milky Way detail. Part of the Milky Way, a band of stars in the night sky that is a view of our own spiral galaxy from the inside. The green object towards lower left is the Dumbbell planetary nebula (M27) formed from shells of gas cast off by a Sun-like star towards the end of its life. The Dumbbell lies around 1250 light years from Earth in the constellation Vulpecula.
