According to SciTech Daily, it was originally thought to be an ORC (strange radio circle), which, although full of mysteries, has been discovered quite a lot in the past. The universewith many noticeable differences in radio spectral index, apparent size…
The ring of fire continues to be suspected to be a peculiar remnant of an ancient supernova located in the Large Magellanic Cloud, one of the satellite galaxies of the Earth-containing galaxy – The Milky Way.
But in the new study, a team of scientists led by Professor Miroslav Filipovic from Western Sydney University’s School of Science say new analyzes show it doesn’t belong to any galaxy – neither the Milky Way nor the Cluster nearby Large Magellanic Cloud – which wanders in intergalactic space where it should not exist.
The ring of fire is indeed the remnant of a supernova, estimated to be only 7,000 years old, a long time for Earthlings but a mere tick compared to cosmic time. Because of its unique “wandering” nature, the ghostly fire ring has been dubbed the “Rogue Supernova Remnant”.
