Evaporated nebulae and their star patterns

  • PattyD by PattyD

    This picture seems to show one of possible conditions:

    1. Stars popping out of the dark nebulae reflecting the organization of a central star (or bright green knot?) surrounded by a ring of stars (or green knots), which in turn have smaller rings of stars.
    2. Stars born in the active green nebulae that have dissipated the gas and dust that gave them birth.

    Burning question: Are the rings that I see equivalent to bubbles and should I identify them as bubbles?
