THOR'S HELMET NEBULA
Abridged from NASA Website
This helmet-shaped cosmic cloud with wing-like appendages is popularly called Thor's Helmet. Heroically sized even for a Norse god, it's about 30 light-years across.

The helmet is like an interstellar bubble, blown as fast wind from the massive star near the bubble's center sweeps through a surrounding molecular cloud.

Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution.

The nebula is located about 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Canis Major.

The image captures striking details of the nebula's filamentary structures. It shows off a blue-green color from strong emission due to oxygen atoms in the glowing gas.
