Fragile (Yes)

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows The Soap Bubble Nebula, found in the area of NGC 6888, The Crescent Nebula, in Cygnus. This object was first identified by an amateur astronomer in 2008 (and independently found several days later by other amateur astronomers). Amateurs can contribute to the field!
