NGC 5979 is a planetary nebula of a little over ⅔ of a light-year across, located in the southern constellation of Triangulum Australe (the Southern Triangle). On the third planet in the system, the unique mix of the colors from the dying star and the nebula combine to give the nightside that magical greenish-yellow purple color.
