NASA’s Hubble Captures Stunning Ancient Galaxy Cluster In Incredible Image [PHOTO]

NASA has shared a stunning image of a galaxy cluster with the designation SPT-CL J0615-5746, which can be shortened to SPT0615. First observed by the South Pole Telescope less than a decade ago, galaxy cluster SPT0615 is located about 97 light-years away in the constellation of Pictor (the Painter’s Easel), according to NASA’s website.

“Just as ancient paintings can tell us about the period of history in which they were painted, so too can ancient galaxies tell us about the era of the universe in which they existed,” NASA posted.

Stunning picture of ‘iconic’ SPIRAL galaxy captured by Hubble Space Telescope

The galaxy – known officially as NGC 2903 – is located 30 million light years away in the constellation of Leo.

Its spiral shape is what most people think of when they picture a galaxy – being the shape of the Milky Way, as well as the nearby Andromeda and’Triangulum Galaxies.

It consists of a flat rotating disc with a concentration of stars in the middle – known as the “bulge” – with arms reaching out from the centre.

“Few of the universe’s residents are as iconic as the’spiral galaxy,” said the European Space Agency.

“These limelight-hogging celestial objects combine whirling, pinwheeling arms with scatterings of sparkling stars, glowing bursts of gas, and dark, weaving lanes of cosmic dust.”

Hubble telescope captures stunning spiral galaxy image

It was examined as part of a Hubble survey of the central regions of roughly 145 nearby disk galaxies.

Hubble, which was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990, is a joint project of NASA and the European Space Agency. It has captured many gorgeous images of space over the years.

“This study aimed to help astronomers better understand the relationship between the black holes that lurk at the cores of galaxies like these, and the rugby-ball-shaped bulge of stars, gas and dust at the galaxy’s center — such as that seen in this image,” according to NASA.

Greetings Earthlings: We are out of our element The data presented above may one day be zapped to another dimension. Just thought you should know this. NASA, either it's cold or someone stole the sun.
