PSNR is an hourglass shaped supernova remnant, or planetary nebula respectively, glowing intensely in blue and bright green hues. The glow comes from the hard radiation output of the remnant's central neutron star. The neutron star has an astonishing 2.3 solar masses and is orbited by a number of landable planets. The closest one is nearly 1,500 ls away, though, not enough for scenic tours on its surface. The planetary nebula is named after 21th century astronomer Phil Plait, who contributed heavily to opening up astronomy as a popular science for millions of fans and amateur astronomers. It is unclear, why he was named the 'Bad Astronomer', the reason presumably having been lost over the centuries. But as he would have put it: "The name stuck."
