NGC 2392 SYSTEM
NGC 2392 SYSTEM
Roughly 10.000 years ago, the sun in this far away star system left the main sequence and the outer shell's formed an planetary nebula.
The formation resembles a person's head surrounded by a parka hood. It is surrounded by gas that composed the outer layers of a Sun-like star. The visible inner filaments are ejected by a strong wind of particles from the central star. The outer disk contains unusual light-year-long filaments.
The central star is a type O8 dwarf star and is 40 times as luminous as the Sun.
