The Hour Glass Nebula The Hourglass Nebula, also known as the Engraved Hourglass Nebula or MyCn18, is a young planetary nebula located in the constellation Musca, the Fly. The nebula lies at a distance of 8,000 light years from Earth. The nebula’s unusual appearance, with two large outer rings and a small central one, has earned the object the nickname the Eye of God, which it shares with the Helix Nebula in Aquarius.
