The Bubble Nebula is a stunning site in the Cassiopeia constellation. At the center is a very hot star that is
streaming particles so fast and super heated that when they collide with the gas and dust of the nebula, they
actually blow a huge bubble into space. NGC 7635 is 11,300 light years from Earth. The actual bubble is
approximately 10 light years across, about 60 trillion miles.
