Red Eye Nebula – Sep 18 2010

This is a picture of NGC 6781, or the Red-eye Nebula, taken a few nights ago.

Sky conditions at the time of the picture being taken were poor so the image is not 100%…. but it gives you an idea of what the nebula looks like. when you look at the picture, you will see the bubble of gas surrounding a dying star. If you look closely you will see the central star in the middle of this plantary nebula.
