NGC 7635, otherwise known as "The Bubble Nebula," is located in the direction of the constellation Cassiopeia. The bubble is formed by the solar wind of a large--about 15 solar masses--central star. It is somewhere between 7000 and 11000 light years from earth and the bubble is about 3-5 light years in diameter.
