Abstract: The mapping of a circumstellar-interstellar bow shock around the AGB star R Hya using Spitzer MIPS 70 micron imaging (Ueta et al. 2006) has transformed our perception of how shells merge with the galactic environment. This helps place claims from the IRAS era in context with exciting new far infrared images being collected with the AKARI all sky survey and pointed observations. This paper reviews the past 20 years of efforts to map these phenomena.
