The Ring Nebula in
Barnard's Galaxyhas the official designation of Hubble 1925 III as it was the third (Roman numeral 3) object recorded in Hubble's 1925 paper, "N.G.C. 6822, A Remote Stellar System". It includes areas of bright H II emission. In Paul W. Hodge's 1977paper it was designated Hodge 4.
Its appearance is very similar to the filamentary nebula found in the
Large Magellanic Cloud(see Meaburn 1981). It most resembles the circular ring-like nebula N70 in the LMC.
