NGC 3699 is a planetary nebula in the Centaurus constellation discovered by John Herschel on Apr 1st, 1834. The nebula surrounds the Wolf-Rayet star Hen 2-65, and no other bodies are found inside the nebula. The nebula is diffuse and best observed from outside.
It is thought that the nebula's complex structure is due to multiple stages of mass ejection in which later ejections had much faster velocities, causing compressional shock wave heating of the material when it ran into gases ejected at an earlier time.
