N2 - Ninety per cent of baryons are located outside galaxies, either in the circumgalactic or intergalactic medium 1,2. Theory points to galactic winds as the primary source of the enriched and massive circumgalactic medium 3–6. Winds from compact starbursts have been observed to flow to distances somewhat greater than ten kiloparsecs 7–10, but the circumgalactic medium typically extends beyond a hundred kiloparsecs 3,4. Here we report optical integral field observations of the massive but compact galaxy SDSS J211824.06+001729.4. The oxygen [O ii] lines at wavelengths of 3726 and 3729 angstroms reveal an ionized outflow spanning 80 by 100 square kiloparsecs, depositing metal-enriched gas at 10,000 kelvin through an hourglass-shaped nebula that resembles an evacuated and limb-brightened bipolar bubble.
