The Blue Planetary Nebula

A planetary nebula is a sun-like star which has reached old age and has shed its outer layers. The Blue Planetary Nebula is also known as NGC 3918 and is located in the Southern constellation of Centaurus. The lower picture shows the same image being projected onto the massive screen outside the Campbelltown Arts Centre during a “Magnitude” photographic display held by Macarthur Astronomical Society in 2010.
