Explanation: The Ring Nebula (M57), is more complicated than it appears through a small telescope. The easily visible central ring is about one light-year across, but this remarkably deep exposure – a collaborative effort combining data from three different large telescopes – explores the looping filaments of glowing gas extending much farther from the nebula’s central star. This composite image includes red light emitted by hydrogen as well as visible and infrared light. The Ring Nebula is an elongated planetary nebula, a type of nebula created when a Sun-like star evolves to throw off its outer atmosphere to become a white dwarf star. The Ring Nebula is about 2,500 light-years away toward the musical constellation Lyra.

说明: 环状星(M57)的结构,比小望远镜所见的要复杂。轻易可见的中心环,宽约1光年,不过如这幅整合3部望远镜协同观测数据的极深空影像所示,在离这团星云中心星很远之处,还有许多会散发辉光的环状云气丝。这幅组合影像,结合了原子的红光辐射、可见光和红外光环状星云是个外观偏长的的行星状星云,是一颗类太阳恒星演化成白矮星时,所抛出的外层大气。环状星云位在天琴座方向约2,500光年远之处。
