Hi all,

An image of NGC 5189, the Spiral planetary nebula has been uploaded. This planetary has a very unusual shape and structure (with many point-symmetric knots) that is due to the nature of its core star: a binary system formed by a Wolf-Rayet star and a white dwarf. You can find the image and additional information at:

NGC 5189. IC 4274

  1. Una estructura muy bonita. Muy interesante por su forma. A saber su origen (seguro que lo sabes. Sin compromiso)
