In 1787, astronomer William Herschel [ http://www.windows.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/tour_def/people/enlightenment/herschel.html ] discovered the Eskimo Nebula [ http://www.seds.org/billa/twn/n2392x.html ]. From the ground, NGC 2392 resembles a person's head surrounded by a parka [ http://www.oregonlink.com/arctic/cormorant_parka.html ] hood. In 2000, the Hubble Space Telescope [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap970306.html ] imaged the Eskimo Nebula. From space, the nebula displays gas clouds so complex they are not fully understood. The Eskimo Nebula [ http://adsabs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/nph-bib_query?bibcode=1990ApJ...362..226O ] is clearly a planetary nebula [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/planetary_nebulae.html ], and the gas seen above composed the outer layers of a Sun [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/sun.html ]-like star only 10,000 years ago. The inner filaments visible above [ http://oposite.stsci.edu/pubinfo/pr/2000/07/pr-photos.html ] are being ejected by strong wind [ http://www-istp.gsfc.nasa.gov/Education/wsolwind.html ] of particles from the central star. The outer disk contains unusual light-year long orange filaments. The Eskimo Nebula lies about 5000 light-year [ http://www.treasure-troves.com/astro/Light-Year.html ]s away and is visible with a small telescope in the constellation [ http://www.emufarm.org/~cmbell/myth/myth.html ] of Gemini [ http://www.astro.wisc.edu/~dolan/constellations/constellations/Gemini.html ].
