Beautiful Photograph du Jour

A dust ring, seen in red, surrounds the star Fomalhaut, which is located at the center of this image but is not visible. The Hubble Telescope captured a fuzzy image of Fomalhaut b, the first extraterrestial planet to be photographed, which is no more than a white speck in the lower right portion of the dust ring.
