Description

WR 134 is a variable Wolf-Rayet star located around 6,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation of Cygnus, surrounded by a faint bubble nebula blown by the intense radiation and fast wind from the star (Wikipedia). I was surprised how much OIII was in the neighborhood--either errant processing on my part, or WR-134 is a powerful star indeed.
