The Egg Nebula...

The Egg Nebula - This preplanetary nebula lies around 3000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. The central star of the Egg was a red giant until a few hundred years ago. It then began shedding its outer layers, which today are visible as a cloud of matter about 0.6 light-year across. (credit: NASA/ESA/Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA). Acknowledgment: W.
