This is Nebula NGC 2392, called Eskimo because it looks like a face surrounded by a furry hood. The hood is, in fact, a ring of comet-shaped objects flying away from a dying star. Eskimo is 5,000 light years from Earth. This one is neat looking.

It really does look like a face with a hood! In the smaller picture, I thought it looked like a great big eye. That is so cool looking.

Whatever you are seeing is 5000 years ago. That's incredible. Where are you finding this stuff? Thank you for the information. So if something happened there now, you wouldn't see it for 5000 years..Cool.
