Centaurus A is the fifth brightest galaxy in the sky -- making it an ideal target for amateur astronomers -- and is famous for the dust lane across its middle and a giant jet blasting away from the supermassive black hole at its center.
A Tidal Galaxy “A previously unsuspected tidal dwarf galaxy candidate appears only in the ultraviolet, indicating the presence of many hot young stars as seen in this cool space Image. IC the small disk galaxy interacting with NGC is.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a rare alignment between two spiral galaxies. The outer rim of a small, foreground galaxy is silhouetted in front of a larger background galaxy. Skeletal tentacles of dust can be seen extending beyond the small g
NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day 2016 August 29 Young Suns of NGC 7129 Young suns still lie within dusty NGC some light-years away toward the royal constellation Cepheus. While these stars are at a relatively tender age, only a few.
NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole.
NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day 2016 July 6 Arp Trio in Virgo A remarkable telescopic composition in yellow and blue, this scene features a trio of interacting galaxies almost 90 million light-years away, toward the constellation Virgo.
A heavy-metal home This globular cluster, NGC is home to heavy-metal stars of a celestial kind! The stars comprising this spectacular spherical cluster are enriched with much higher proportions of metals — elements heavier.
