Informally known as the "Soap Bubble Nebula", this planetary nebula (officially known as PN G75.5+1.7) was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich on July 6th, 2008. It was noted and reported by Keith Quattrocchi and Mel Helm on July 17th, 2008. This image was obtained with the Kitt Peak Mayall 4-meter telescope on June 19th, 2009 in the H-alpha (orange) and [OIII] (blue) narrowband filters. In this image, north is to the left and east is down.

Pop goes the supernova! Actually, that's planetary nebula PN or better known as the Soap Bubble Nebula, which was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich back in Just look at it and wonder what other marvels does the Universe have in stock?

Nebula

Star Cluster Pismis NGC Pismis 24 hangs over NGC a nebula about 8000 ly away in Scorpius. This picture showed that the brightest star in the cluster is in fact two stars in a tight binary orbit. Each star is about 100 times the Sun's mass.

NGC 602 is a young, bright open cluster of stars located in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way. Radiation and shock waves from the stars have pushed away much of the lighter surrounding gas and dust that compose the nebula known as N90, and this in turn has triggered new star formation in the ridges (or "elephant trunks") of the nebula.
