Hubble photographed the Abel 78 nebula in the constellation Cygnus

The Hubble Space Telescope photographed Agnel 78, a planet 5,000 light-years from Earth.

As reported Website According to the European Space Agency, the diameter of the spacecraft is about 3 light-years.

Abel 78 is an extraordinary type of planetary nebula.

Astronomers point out that during this process, the dying star sheds its outer layers and turns into a cloud of complex gas and dust known as the planetary nebula. This phenomenon is not uncommon, and the nebulae of the planets are of interest to astronomers because of their beautiful and intricate shapes. However, some of them, such as Abel 78, are the result of a star known as the “Born Again.”

Although the core of the star has stopped burning hydrogen and helium, a thermonuclear explosion on its surface expels the resulting mass at high speed. This ejection shakes the objects of the old nebula, forming filaments and random shells around the central star, which can be seen in this photo.
