Day 17 of the 2014 Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar http://goo.gl/g4BawQ : A Celestial Spiral. This unusual pre-planetary nebula, known as IRAS 23166+1655, forming around the star LL Pegasi (also known as AFGL 3068) in the constellation of Pegasus, one of the most perfect geometrical forms yet discovered in space. shows what appears to be a thin spiral pattern of astonishingly regularity winding around the star, which is itself hidden behind thick dust. The spiral pattern suggests a regular periodic origin for the nebula's shape. The material forming the spiral is moving outwards a speed of about 50,000 km/hour and, by combining this speed with the distance between layers, astronomers calculate that the shells are each separated by about 800 years.
