This new ESO Very Large Telescope image shows the planetary nebula Fleming 1 in the constellation of Centaurus. This striking object is a glowing cloud of gas around a dying star. New observations have shown that it is likely that a very rare pair of white dwarf stars lies at the heart of this object. Their orbital motions can fully explain the remarkably symmetric structures of the jets in the surrounding gas clouds in this and similar objects.

This artist's impression shows how the two stars at the heart of a planetary nebula like Fleming 1 can control the creation of the spectacular jets of material ejected from the object.

This chart shows the location of the planetary nebula Fleming 1 in the southern constellation of Centaurus. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the location of the nebula is highlighted with a red circle on the image. This planetary nebula is small and faint and can only be seen visually with larger amateur telescopes.

Fleming 1 (Planetary Nebula) : Movie

Zooming in on the planetary nebula Fleming 1
This video starts with a wide field view of the spectacular southern part of the Milky Way. We close in gradually on a small bubble of glowing gas in the constellation of Centaurus. This is the planetary nebula Fleming 1, glowing gas shells and symmetrical jets around an aging pair of stars. The final detailed view comes from the FORS2 instrument on the Very Large Telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

This striking object is a glowing cloud of gas around a dying star. New observations have shown that it is likely that a very rare pair of white dwarf stars lies at the heart of this object, a fact that can fully explain the remarkably symmetric structures of the jets in the surrounding gas clouds.
