A stunning 'butterfly' in space: Amazing Hubble image captures the Twin Jet Nebula spewing out cosmic clouds at 620,000mph
Image reveals the incredible complexity of the bipolar nebula’s two shimmering lobes 5,560 light-years away
It is known as a bipolar nebula, because it has two stars at its centre with around the same mass as the sun
The star has not only ejected its outer layers, but the exposed remnant core is now illuminating these layers
