The Ring Nebula (also catalogued as Messier 57M57 or NGC 6720) is a planetary nebula in the northern constellation of Lyra.[4] Such objects are formed when a shell of ionized gas is expelled into the surrounding interstellar medium by a star in the last stages of its evolution before becoming a white dwarf.
