Original – NGC 2359, lies in the constellation of Canis Major (The Great Dog). The helmet-shaped nebula is around 15 000 light-years away from Earth and is over 30 light-years across. The helmet is a cosmic bubble, blown as the wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's centre sweeps through the surrounding molecular cloud.

Sorry, no perfect Hubble image. But I find this one is the best one available for FPC. How's the alternate...?? The Herald 09:09, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Alt is very fuzzy, and appears to be upscaled from a much smaller image, so, Oppose that one, too. Pity if no better can be found. --Janke | Talk 08:10, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
