The interaction of two doomed stars has created this spectacular ring adorned with bright clumps of gas—a diamond necklace of cosmic proportions.

Fittingly known as the "Necklace Nebula," this planetary nebula is located 15,000 light-years away from Earth in the small, dim constellation of Sagitta (the Arrow).

A pair of tightly orbiting sun-like stars produced the Necklace Nebula, which also goes by the less glamorous name of PN G054.203.4.

The pair of stars which created the Necklace Nebula remain so close together—separated by only several million miles—that they appear as a single bright dot in the center of this image.

Despite their close encounter, the stars are still furiously whirling around each other, completing an orbit in just over a day.
