Although originally discovered by John Hershel in June 1834, this diffuse planetary nebula did not achieve popular interest until more powerful observation technology in the 20th Century were able to discern its distinctive ring shape. Fascinated by its structure, astronomers in that era frequently referred to NGC 6337 as "the Cheerio Nebula" in honor of what archivists believe was a ring-shaped breakfast food that was popular in North America. The nebula is a binary system with a Wolf-Rayet main star that it is orbited by five ringed, helium rich gas giants and a Class A star that is orbited by another ringed helium giant and two Class Y dwarfs.
