Photo of the Day: Star WR 124 and Nebula M1-67
At the end of last week, the Image of the Day was published on the NASA website, which is a photo of two objects in the constellation of Sagittarius captured by Hubble Telescope.
In the photo we see the star Hen 2-427 — more commonly known as WR 124 — which is a Wolf-Rayet star, and the nebula M1-67 which surrounds it. Both objects lie 15,000 light-years away.
The first images of the star WR 124 and the nebula M1-67 were captured in 1998.
