Still another planetary lies in Cygnus, just east of the North American Nebula. 7027 looked to me, the first night I saw it, to be shaped like a mitten, or a pear, or a snowman. It gave the impression of being "pinched" on one side. Sure enough, I looked it up and found its shape classified as "exceptions to the above". In a rich region, 7027 has a bluish tinge, and it is small but bright.
