Helix Nebula

I've always considered nebula as some of the most beautiful things in the universe. It's the incredible shades of color, the subtle depth and transparency, and the mind-blowing sizes that really grab me.

NASA has an Astronomy Picture of the Day site and that's where you can see the following two images of what has become known as "The Eye of God."

Here's a photo of the Helix Nebula from 2003 taken by Nasa.
Here's one taken in 2000.
