The painting above is NGC 6543, also known as the Cat Eye Nebula, located within our own galaxy, three thousand light-years away. The complexity of the nebula’s morphology may indicate that the central star could be a binary star system. Planetary nebulae arise due to a dying star in its latest stage of stellar evolution. In nebulae such as this one, the stellar ejecta is propelled in all directions and may have been enriched by He during the course of stellar evolution.
