Hourglass Nebula

This image, famously used on the cover of the Pearl Jam album Binaural, is of the Hourglass Nebula. It is located within the southern constellation called Musca and is about 8,000 light years from Earth. It’s a relatively young nebula, according to NASA. Obviously it takes good care of itself; look at that hourglass figure!
