Fr 2-25 Planetary Nebula in Monoceros

This extremely faint planetary nebula also known as Alv-Kn1 has been discovered by the professional astronomer David Frew in 2008 and the amateur astronomers Filipe Alves and Matthias Kronberger in 2012.
It is an ancient PN and the bowshock is a result of it interacting with the ISM. It extends about 20 arc-min and shines both in Ha and O-III light.
