Small but bright and pretty, NGC 6884 wasknown to be a bright, round disk until Hubble took a look at it, revealing complex details. It’s a shame that many planetary nebulas are so hard to see. It would appear even more bright if it were not for our Milky Way’s interloping dust.
North is up.
Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
