A DYING STAR PHOTOGRAPHED BY HUBBLE


U Cam for short, a star in the  constellation of Camelopardalis, is dying.
But that's a long process. Every few thousand years, U Cam coughs out a nearly spherical shell of gas. 

Nothing gold stays, as Robert Frost wrote in his wonderful poem. Not even a star.
