Description: Hoag's Object is a non-typical galaxy of the type known as a ring galaxy. The appearance of this object has interested amateur astronomers as much as its uncommon structure has fascinated professionals. The galaxy was discovered in 1950 by astronomer Arthur Allen Hoag who identified it as either a planetary nebula or a peculiar galaxy.
