Astronomy Science ~ NGC 6888, also known as the Crescent Nebula, is a cosmic bubble about 25 light-years wide, the breeze from the large bright star at its center. Colorful portrait of this nebula image data tape using combined narrow channels in the Hubble pallate. It shows emission from sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms of the nebula in the red, green and blue. The central star of NGC 6888 that is classified as a Wolf-Rayet star (WR 136).

The star is shedding its outer layers in the form of strong stellar wind, issued a similar material with Sun's mass every 10,000 years. The complex structure of the nebula is probably the result of strong wind interacting with material issued in the previous phase. Burning fuel at an incredible rate and nearing the end of his life, this star should ultimately be lost in an instant in a spectacular supernova explosion. Found in the Cygnus constellation, NGC 6888 about 5,000 light-years away.
