Helix Nebula Bathed In Light
The Helix Nebula, one of the closest planetary nebulae, is located some 650 lights years away toward the constellation Aquarius. This nebula spans more than 1/4 degree of the sky, or more than 1/2 of the diameter of the full Moon. Blue light results from ionized oxygen, and red light results from ionized hydrogen and nitrogen.
