The region around the Ring Nebula (Hubble/LBT composite)
This image is a composite of the Ring Nebula (Messier 57). This combines new Hubble Wide Field Camera 3 data with observations of the nebula's outer halo from the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona, USA. In this image, the knotty, turbulent space around the nebula shows up dramatically, creating an almost psychedelic effect.
The Large Binocular Telescope is part of the Mount Graham International Observatory in Arizona.
