The Cosmic Peanut

One of our volunteers thinks this object looks like a peanut (Irrelevant but Fun Fact: Peanuts are not actually nuts). Jules, a moderator on the Milky Way Project, correctly identified it as planetary nebula NGC 7354. A nice find! In a few billion years our Sun will form a nebula similar to this.
