Zooming in on the planetary nebula Abell 33

Loading player...

This zoom sequence starts with a broad view showing part of the long thin constellation of Hydra (The Female Water Snake). Towards the end a ghostly blue bubble can be seen, with a bright star on its edge, making it look like a diamond ring. This is the planetary nebula Abell 33.
