 The bubble with 7 light-years diameter lies 7,100 light-years away from us. The huge star blowing up this bubble is 45 times more massive than our sun. Gas on the star is extremely hot and emitted away as a "stellar wind" with its velocity nearly 2000km/sec. This flow sweeps up the interstellar gas in front of it, forming the outer edge of the bubble like a snowplow pushes up snow.
 As the surface of the bubble's shell expands outward, it collides dense regions of some side of cold gas, asymmetry phenomenon appears while making the star to be off-center from the bubble, with its location in the 10 o'clock position in the bubble as pointed by
seems to be an arc produced by collision between the gas and the wind. 
 Dense pillars of molecular cloud with dust,
'D', appear at the upper left of the bubble, and more "fingers" can be seen behind the bubble 'C'.
The pillars are similar to the "Pillars of Creation" in the Eagle Nebula. The Bubble Nebula's pillars are being illuminated by the strong ultraviolet radiation from the brilliant star inside of the bubble.
 The massive and extremely bright star is considered to be short-lived star that has lost most of its outer hydrogen and is now fusing helium into heavier elements. The star is about 4 million years old, and in 10 million to 20 million years, it will likely detonate as a supernova.
