Abstract

Ring nebulae have been found around WR stars, OB and Of stars, and luminous blue variables. Ring nebulae are formed by the interaction between the central stars and their ambient medium via different combinations of stellar winds, ejecta, and radiation. The spectral properties of the nebulae can be used to diagnose the stellar properties, such as luminosity and effective temperature. Correlations between ring nebulae and their central stars may be used to check scenarios of stellar evolution.
