Description:

The Little Dumbbell Nebula, also known as Messier 76, NGC 650/651, the Barbell Nebula, or the Cork Nebula, is a planetary nebula in the Elysian Shore. The system features stunning sights and anemones on the surfaces of moons.

The Little Dumbbell Nebula circa 2014 (top) and from Little Dumbbell Sector ZA-N b7-0 (bottom), the closest system at 17.84 ly away

The bodies found in the nebula's system consist of 11 different stars, an O class star orbited by a K star, T Tauri stars and red / brown dwarf stars, and multiple small landables which feature volcanism and Prasinum Bioluminescent anemones.

The second body (GCRV 950 2) is a thick silicate vapour atmospheric planet which features some stunning looking rings that reflect the parent O class star's light. This is a great place to take pictures with the various stars of the system in the frame.
