Bubble nebula

April 9, 2022

The bubble nebula is an emission nebula found 7100 light-years from Earth in the star Cassiopeia. (Also known as NGC 7635) The bubble formed around the nebula, which is about 7 light-years in diameter, due to the stellar wind emanating from the giant star SAO 20575, which shines brightly in the center. The star in…

Planetary nebula

November 1, 2021

During the mainstream phase of stellar evolution, the outer layers expand and the core shrinks as the stars become red giants. Externally expanding outer layers are separated from the star by various actions. This part of the planet is called the Planetary Nebula. Named the Planetary Nebula, it has nothing to do with the Planet….
