Extremely rare ’cosmic ring of fire’ discovered

Astronomers have spotted a rare ring galaxy, some 11 billion light years from the Earth, believed to be the result of a catastrophic collision between two galaxies. The donut-shaped galaxy is making stars in its huge ring at a rate 50 times faster than our home galaxy. If R5519 is caused by a huge collision, that would make it extremely rare. One in 10,000 galaxies are formed in such a way.
