Astronomy Tuesday

That striking flowerlike spiral in the upper left of this image is called LL Pegasi. Astronomers are not sure what created those strange spirals, but it seems to be yet another strange planetary nebula within a binary star system. Each time the stars circle each other, it creates another loop in the spiral.
