  NGC 7293, the Helix Nebula

NGC 7293, the Helix Nebula
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Uploader comment: NGC 7293, better known as the Helix nebula, displays its ultraviolet glow courtesy of NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX). The Helix is the nearest example of a planetary nebula, which is the eventual fate of a star, like our own Sun, as it approaches the end of its life.
