The Necklace Nebula is a 19-trillion-kilometre-wide planetary nebula located about 15,000 light-years away in the northern constellation Sagitta.

It was discovered in 2005 from the Isaac Newton Telescope Photometric H-alpha Survey (IPHAS).

To describe it, Nasa, in the caption of their post, said, “Get in. We’re going to the cosmic jewelry store! The Necklace Nebula is located around 15,000 light-years away. It’s the glowing aftermath of an exploded star, consisting of a bright ring that measures about 12 trillion miles across, dotted with dense, bright knots of gas that resemble diamonds in a necklace.”
