Helix Nebula

The Helix Nebula, a cosmic starlet famous for its vivid colors and eerie resemblance to a giant eye is located about 700 light-years away from Earth. Planetary nebulae are the remains of stars that once looked a lot like our sun. When sun-like stars die, they puff out their outer gaseous layers. These layers are heated by the hot core of the dead star, called a white dwarf, and shine with infrared and visible colours.
