Kohoutek 1-6

Kohoutek 1-6 (K 1-6) is an evolved low-surface brightness planetary nebula in the constellation Draco. It is an asymmetric planetary nebula with a binary central star. It has an approximate size of 198 arc seconds and is around 3,000 light years from Earth.
It was discovered by Czech astronomer LuboŇ° Kohoutek in 1962. It has a bow-shock structure which is attributed to interaction with the interstellar medium (ISM).
