NASA news: Hubble telescope’s dazzling portrait of galaxy 50 million light-years away | Science | News

Hubble’s astronomers from the European Space Agency (ESA) dubbed the image a “dazzling display”.

ESA said: “The galaxy can be seen slicing across the frame in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, with its mix of bright patches of glowing gas, dark lanes of dust, bright core, and whirling, pinwheeling arms coming together to paint a beautiful celestial scene.

“The galaxy is the eponymous member of the NGC 3175 group, which has been called a nearby analogue for the Local Group.

“The Local Group contains our very own home galaxy, the Milky Way, and around 50 others – a mix of spiral, irregular and dwarf galaxies.”
