The mesmerising Ring Nebula through the eyes of the James Webb Space Telescope captured by the astronomers at the University of Manchester.

The Ring Nebula, which is also known as Messier 57 (M57), is approximately 2,200 light-years away from Earth.

This donut-shaped ring of glowing gas and dust is visible even through a domestic telescope during a clear sky.

M57 came into existence from a dying star that expelled its outer layers into space creating delicate glowing rings of gas and dust.
