The Clownface Nebula is a bipolar double-shell planetary nebula. Discovered by astronomer William Herschel in 1787, it's surrounded by gas that composed the outer layers of a Sun-like star. The visible inner filaments are ejected by a strong wind of particles from the central star. Light-year-long filaments create an outer disc form.
