Caption

The planetary nebula Abell 30, (A30), is located about 5500 light years from Earth. A planetary nebula is formed in the late stage of the evolution of a sun-like star, after it expands to become a red giant. In the case of A30, a planetary nebula formed but then the star briefly reverted to being a red giant. The evolution of the planetary nebula then restarted, making it reborn, a special phase of evolution that is rarely seen. Release date November 15, 2012.
