I always feel like somebody's watching me...

It's a giant cosmic eye! No, actually, it's a planetary nebula (which the article defines as "stars around the size of the sun that have neared the ends of their lives and run out of hydrogen and helium fuel for fusion in their cores"). Just another proof that not only is the universe more beautiful than we imagine; it's more beautiful than we can imagine.
