Braided, serpentine filaments of glowing gas suggest this nebula's popular name, The Medusa Nebula. Also known as Abell this Medusa is an old planetary nebula some light-years away in the constellation Gemini.

In this stunning vista, based on image data from the Hubble Legacy Archive, distant galaxies form a dramatic backdrop for disrupted spiral galaxy Arp 188, the Tadpole Galaxy. Arp 188 is also known as UGC 10214. The cosmic tadpole is a mere 420 million light-years distant toward the northern constellation Draco. Its eye-catching tail is about 280 thousand light-years long and features massive, bright blue star clusters.

Arp 188 and the Tadpole’s Tail: Its eye-catching tail is about light-years long – more than 2 times the diameter of the Milky Way – and features massive, bright blue star clusters.

It lies along the northern Milky Way in the constellation Cepheus. Pockets of interstellar dust in the region block light or scatter light from the star, giving a blue color. This star seems to have only accidentally wandered into the area, as its velocity is very different from the cloud's…
