Zooming on the Cat's Eye Nebula

Loading player...

Hubble observes the sky in the direction of the constellation of Draco (the Dragon) where the Cat?s Eye Nebula is located. As we zoom in we see first an image constructed from the Digitized Sky Survey 2, then an image taken by the Nordic Optical Telescope and finally the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.
