In November 2008, the Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of planetary nebula NGC 2818, which lies in the southern constellation of Pyxis (the Compass). The spectacular structure of the nebula contains the outer layers of a star that were expelled into interstellar space. The colors in the image represent a range of emissions coming from the clouds of the nebula: red represents nitrogen, green represents hydrogen, and blue represents oxygen.

The unique planetary nebula NGC 2818 is nested inside the open star cluster NGC 2818A. Both the cluster and the nebula reside over 10 000 light-years away, in the southern constellation Pyxis (the Compass).

ESA/Hubble Flashback:Hubble images of a nebula within a cluster The planetary nebula NGC 2818 is nested inside open star cluster NGC 2818A. Both the cluster & the nebula reside over 10 000 light-yrs away, in the southern constellation Pyxis (Compass). Open clusters are loosely bound & dispersed over 100's of millions of yrs. Stars that form planetary nebulae typically live for billions of years.This open cluster is estimated to be nearly1 billion years old.
