Although commonly named the “Jellyfish Nebula”, this object is actually a Supernova remnant. When a massive star reaches the point when it can no longer sustain nuclear fission, the star’s core can collapse on itself and create a “Supernova”. The outer layers of the star are ejected during the collapse and create a supernova remnant.
