We see a bright point of light at the center that is flanked by glowing lobes of orange and white material. There are comet-shaped orange filaments surrounding the lobes in a circle, all against black space. NGC 2392 was first discovered by astronomer William Herschel in 1787, and its formation resembles a person’s head surrounded by a parka hood.
