The Helix Nebula is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation of Aquarius. Discovered by Karl Ludwig Harding, probably before 1824, this object is one of the closest to the Earth of all the bright planetary nebulae. The Helix has often been referred to as the Eye of God on the Internet, since about 2003.
