I remember first looking for and finding this nebula many years ago. It looked like a little round green smudge that time. I can see slightly more detail in it now, but this Hubble image is absolutely amazing! When I next view the Cat's eye, I'll keep this image in my mind, even if I can't see it with my eye.
