The true shape of the nebula to be an hourglass with an intricate pattern of 'etchings' in its walls. The light of ionized nitrogen (represented by red), hydrogen (green), and doubly-ionized oxygen (blue).
Hubble observations reveal that the nebula's shape is more complicated than astronomers thought. NASA said: "The blue gas in the nebula's center is actually a football-shaped structure that pierces the red doughnut-shaped material."
Butterfly Nebula (also known as Minkowsky Nebula and Twin Jet Nebula) is a planetary nebula. The glowing and expanding shells of gas clearly visible in this image represent the final stages of life for an old star of low to intermediate mass.
The name "Rotten Egg" nebula is derived from it's relatively large amount of sulfur. The densest parts of the nebula are composed of material ejected recently by the central star and accelerated in opposite directions.
Looking like a small face framed by a fur-lined hood, this is the breathtakingly beautiful Eskimo Nebula. This is an intricate structure of shells and streamers of gas which surround a dying Sun-like star.
The Cat's Eye (NGC 6543) represents a brief, yet glorious, phase in the life of a sun-like star. This nebula's dying central star may have produced the simple, outer pattern of dusty concentric shells by shrugging off outer layers in a series of regular convulsions.
Nebula Bliss was create to see the beauty of the most well-known Nebula up close and in 3D. Each nebula is a procedural generated using complex 3D math, which means the models are generated in your device. They have been painstakingly retouched with color and mathematical anomalies. The models try to be as accurate to NASA/Hubble images where possible but some nebulae have more complex inner structures that are not well understood.

With the help of Eugene, I've taken a concept I'd imagined and brought it to reality. I improved all the 3D Engine designs to be very close to the real nebulae. I chose the best music to match the nebulae.
There were no Engines that would display nebulae fast enough. I created the procedural based mathematical nebulae, while Amith created the visual design.
