NGC 3211 is a small blue planetary nebula in Carina and below most of the galactic plane. It was discovered by John Herschel on Mar 7th, 1837. The nebula offers a good view of the nearby Eta Carina nebula.
The nebula is unusual for having as the host star a high-age A-class star with rocky bodies. A-class stars are not known to give off mass in such a way as to cause this type of nebula. Astrophysicists can only speculate as to what caused the current arrangement.
