Hourglass Nebula by me

I chose the picture above of a poster I have that shows a photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the Hourglass nebula. I’ve had this poster since high school and its always been my favorite due to its interesting eyeball figure and many colored rings. The picture actually shows MyCn18 , a young planetary nebula that is located about 8000 light years away. This photograph was another instance of the Hubble Space Telescope greatly increasing the understanding of space phenomena
