Description

Next to the Bubble Nebula, here on the lower right, lies a bipolar planetary nebula designated KjPn8 or Kazarian-Parsamian 8. Virtually nobody knows that, me too, until Stefan Lilge from Berlin noted it on one of the boards. It consists of a loop of Hydrogen filaments, and two brighter shock fronts on each side. In the center e newer and small bright red PN has formed, making it ia multi-layered object.
