We are looking at remnants of a collapsed star which died in a violent explosion a millennium ago. The core is now a pulsar, a rapidly spinning neutron star, which is still shaping the surrounding gasses with extreme energy. The event on July 4, 1054 was noted by Chinese astronomers as being visible during the day!
The hydrogen gasses appear as a cage of twisted tendrils spiraling right into the heart of the pulsar wind nebula. This object is exotic, almost beyond comprehension.
