About 11[degrees] from Deneb Algedi is that other famous planetary in Aquarius, the Helix Nebula
With clearer vision, the telescope imaged thousands of galaxies in the Hubble Deep Fields (top left), dying stars such as the Helix Nebula
(middle) and pairs of entangled galaxies, including Arp 273 (bottom).
Geneva, Switzerland, March 13, 2015 --(PR.com)-- The Helix Nebula
project was established by public and private organisations to build a multidisciplinary cloud platform for data intensive science.
"The Helix Nebula
, Saturn Nebula and yellow supergiant Sadalmelik are all found in which constellation of the Zodiac?" Uh, dunno.
This object called the Helix nebula
, lies 650 light-years away in the constellation of Aquarius.

The real gem in Aquarius though is NGC 7293, the Helix nebula
. At a distance of around 600 light years the Helix is the closest planetary nebula to us and covers an area on the sky over half that of the full Moon, which equates to a true diameter of around 1.5 light years.
Washington, July 21 (ANI): A University of Missouri professor has identified new features in the material that is being ejected from the dying star Helix Nebula
, as previously unseen comet-shaped knots.
The observations come from the Spitzer Space Telescope, which recently focused on a huge, eye-shaped cloud of gas and dust called the Helix nebula
, 700 light-years from Earth.

The unveiling of a never-before-seen image of the Helix nebula
on Saturday was like looking at a Rorschach test.
