Hubble space telescope observations reveal a stupendous spiral galaxy which is 30 million light-years away in the constellation Leo.
After celebrating its recent 29 year anniversary in space, Hubble continues to give its best work to humanity. With all Hubble space telescope observations, scientists were able to understand the formation of planets better.
Spiral galaxies combine whirling, pinwheeling arms with scatterings of sparkling stars, glowing bursts of gas, and dark, weaving lanes of cosmic dust, according to a statement by the US space agency.
The galaxy was studied as a part of a Hubble survey of central regions of almost 145 nearby galaxies.
The image is of a stunning NGC 2903 a galaxy far far away. As far as 30 million light years.
