Image of  the "Dumbell Nebula M27", in Vulpecula, photographed from St. John's  on October 15, 2009 by Tim Caruk.

About 14,600  years ago M27 was formed when a star exploded it's contents into space, and it has slowly expanded to it's current size.  I took this image through a 8 inch SCT telescope from St John's, on Oct. 15, 2009.
