Greetings friends astronomy enthusiasts. I present the M27 - Dumbbell Nebula in the constellation of Vulpecula. This planetary nebula is the result of the expulsion of the outer layer of a star, in this case, the expulsion occurred about 3,500 years ago.It is 1250 light years away and is about 2.5 light-years across.
