Thor's Helmet (NGC 2359) and Planetary Nebula, is about 30 light-years across. The helmet is actually more like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's center sweeps through a surrounding molecular cloud. Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre- supernova stage of evolution. In contrast, the faint, round nebula is a planetary nebula, the gaseous shroud of a dying lower mass star.

Thor's Helmet Nebula: NGC 2359 is an emission nebula about light years, or parsecs distant. In the middle of the "helmet" is star HD This is a rare "Wolf-Rayet" star which has very high mass and may be the progenitor of a supernova.
