NGC 1514 is often called the Crystal Ball Nebula. It is a planetary nebula located in the constellation of Taurus. Discovered by William Herschel in 1790, it caused him to rethink the idea that nebulosity is just unresolved stars. The nebula is formed by a tightly bound pair of dying stars that are expelling their outer layers.
