Add Image to Favorite List 2012-05-16 Helix Nebula Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX)
Ultraviolet/Visible Camera
2920x2920x3
NGC 7293, better known as the Helix nebula, displays its ultraviolet glow courtesy of NASA's 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.
