Hi all,

An image of NGC 3132, the Southern Ring Nebula, has been uploaded. This planetary nebula shows a good resemblance with M57, the Ring Nebula, but it is located in the Southern Hemisphere. The nebula itself seems to have the structure of a “diabolo”, meaning a “double-cup”, although it is seen from a perspective that does not show it as clearly as the Bug Nebula. You can find the image and more info at:
