WOH G64, a red hypergiant in the Large Magellanic Cloud. It is the second largest known star with nearly 2000 times the diameter of the Sun. Its surrounded by a huge ring of gas and dust that extends out to 30,000 AU, or 30,000 times the distance from the Sun to Earth.

The area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.

Dust ring around the star Fomalhaut is seen by ALMA - Fomalhaut is the brightest star in the constellation Piscis Austrinus and one of the brightest stars in the sky.

At the centre of every large galaxy lives a giant black hole that swallows gas or dust clouds that stray too close. As matter spirals inwards, it is compressed into an accretion disk. By the time it falls into the black hole, the matter is so hot that much of its mass is converted to energy, which emerges as heat, light and jets of high-energy particles. http://www.nature.com/polopoly_fs/7.14928.1389717382!/image/Quasar.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_630/Quasar.jpg
