Caption

Dumbbell nebula (M27). This is a planetary nebula, a series of shells of gas cast off by a Sun-like star at the end of its life. The shells glow as the gas they contain is ionised by radiation from the exposed core of their parent star. M27 lies around 1250 light years from Earth in the constellation Vulpecula.
