A small, dense object and powerful pulsar only twelve miles in diameter is responsible for this beautiful X-ray nebula that spans 150 light years.
A supermassive black hole, about 70 million times more massive than our sun, exist at the center of the spiral galaxy M81.
The impact between the dwarf galaxy and the spiral galaxy caused a shock wave − akin to a sonic boom on Earth – that generated
NGC 2392 is a planetary nebula, a phase that results when a star like the sun becomes a red giant and sheds its outer layers.
