Red giant star blows strange smoke rings as it is about to die

A red giant star in the final stages of its existence has been caught emitting strange smoke-like rings for the first time.

The star, called V Hydrae, located some 1,300 light-years from Earth, is a so-called asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star. That is a star which has reached the final stage of its red giant phase of existence before collapsing into a white dwarf.
