The fresh model was assembled using new interpretations made by the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) and its X-Shooter spectrograph over two nights in March 2012. The group imaged near-infrared, ultraviolet and visible wavelengths along 92 distinct bands across the nebula; it's reflected to be the most complete spectral map to date. A software platform called "Shape" was used to generate the 3D modeling.
