NGC6164-6165 Wide by EddieTrimarchi on Flickr.Via Flickr:
NGC6164-65 is a Planetary nebula in the southern constellation Norma, around 4200 light years from us.
An interesting and unusual extra to NGC6188, a very large and interesting nebula centered in Ara beyond the top of this frame.
When this dual-lobed planetary nebula was discovered in 1854 by John Herschel, the two outer lobes did not appear connected, so each was cataloged individually.
