As NASA shared the image, in the caption of the post they informed, "⁣Unlike ordinary nebulas with one star at the center, this nebula has two stars at the center, making it a bipolar nebula. One star is a small white dwarf while the other is approaching the end of its days. The two stars circle one another roughly every 100 years. It is believed that the dying star has ejected its outer layers of gas into space and is being pulled into two lobes instead of a sphere."
