Hubble recorded an “orange ribbon” that is actually the remnant of a dead star

When a star explodes, its remains mix with gases and dust in space, creating a beautiful view of the space tape.

The Hubble Space Telescope spotted the remains of a star believed to have exploded about 10,000 to 20,000 years ago. The impressive scene is reminiscent of an orange ribbon.

From the Earth’s perspective, the exploded star was once in the constellation Cygnus in the northern hemisphere, and the image shows only a portion of the explosive wave located at a distance of about 2,400 light-years.

The mentioned star was much bigger than the Sun, about 20 times. After the star explodes, its remains remain, which in this case were emitted at a distance of 60 light years, writes Mashable.
