    Black ring in the middle of the galaxy. Also, what's going on below that galaxy? Is that a huge blue star?

    The blue thing is a star and that black #ring is the lane of dust ( #dustlane )

    Erm ! The blue thing is indeed a foreground star from our galaxy, but the 'black' ring is not dust at all !
