The Fine Ring Nebula (also known as Shapley 1), is a planetary nebula with a unique ring structure. Unlike most planetary nebula, the Fine Ring Nebula is non-bipolar and torus-shaped with a distinct blue color.
As most nebula of this type are caused by the expulsion of the outer layers of the host star, the shape may indicate that the Wolf-Rayet class host star had a particularly violent expulsion event at a period of high rotational velocity.
Historical note : Shapley 1 was the first waypoint system of the Distant Worlds 3302 expedition.
