The Helix Nebula (NGC 7293) is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius, approx. 215 parsecs or 700 light-years distant from Earth. It was the first planetary nebula discovered to contain cometary knots, which can be seen as globs with tails around the center of the “pupil”. There are more than 20,000 cometary knots estimated to be in the Helix Nebula. These knots remain somewhat of a mystery to astronomers. NASA/Hubble/JPL/Cal Tech

This object, called the Helix nebula, lies 650 light-years away in the constellation of Aquarius. Also known by the catalog number NGC 7293, it is a typical example of a class of objects called planetary nebulae. Discovered in the 18th century, these cosmic works of art were erroneously named for their resemblance to gas-giant planets.

"The Eye if God" : Helix Nebula, described by astronomers as "a trillion-mile-long tunnel of glowing gases." At its center is dying star which has ejected masses of dust and gas to form tentacle-like filaments stretching toward an outer rim composed of the same material.

National Geographic- it looks like an eye, but it's a Nebula.  We are made of this awesome stardust.
