'Tis the season for holiday decorating and tree-trimming. Not to be left out, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have photographed a festive-looking nearby planetary nebula called NGC 5189.

These high resolution images of space scenes are matted to perfection on quality card-stock board and feature a description of the image on back.
