The Helix Nebula, also known as The Helix or NGC 7293, is a large planetary nebula (PN) located in the constellation of Aquarius. Discovered by Karl Ludwig Harding, probably before 1824, this object is one of the closest to the Earth of all the bright planetary nebulae.


Esta es una pequeña región de la espectacular Nebulosa de la Quilla, En la parte inferior se pueden ver nubes moleculares, tan densas que no permiten el paso de la luz de estrellas a su alrededor. También llamadas nebulosas oscuras. La Nebulosa de la Quilla tiene un tamaño de 300 años-luz y está a 7.500 años-luz de distancia de la Tierra. #astronomia #ciencia
