In 2004, NASA’s Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) mission captured imagery of a star with a mysterious blue ring around it. The star was given the designation TYC 2597-735-1

This fascinating star captivated the imagination and led to extensive observations and further research. 

A new study of TYC 2597-735-1, suggested the blue ring could be the result of a sun-like star colliding into a smaller companion star.  

The study theorized that “two cones of material could have collided, in opposite directions”, creating the blue ring Nebula phenomena.
