It was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy. Recently it was estimated to be 23 ± 4 million light-years from our Milky Way galaxy.

spectacular new image from Hubble Space Telescope NASA This spectacular new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the group of galaxies called Stephan's Quintet has provided a detailed view of one of the most exciting star forming regions in the local Universe. Stephan's Quintet is a favored object for amateur astronomers and has earned a reputation as a challenging target for good hobby Hubble Space Telescope. The quintet is a prototype of a class of objects known as compact groups of galaxies and has been studied intensively for decades. This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is a close-up view of the central part of Stephan's Quintet, giving a magnificent view of a gigantic cosmic collision. Weird, highly distorted features, dust lanes crossing between galaxies and lo

 A Misbehaving Spiral Galaxy regardless of its unassuming appearance, the edge on spiral galaxy captured in the left half of of this NASA/ESA Hubble space Telescope photograph is absolutely quite wonderful. Space in Images A Misbehaving Spiral Galaxy Located about one billion light-years in the constellation of Eridanus, this placing galaxy known as LO95 0313-192  has a spiral form similar to that of the Milky way. It has a big valuable bulge, and hands speckled with brightly sparkling gas mottled by means of thick traces of dim dirt. Its companion, sitting quite inside the right of the frame, is known as a substitute unpoetically as [LOY2001] J031549.8-190623. Jets! outburst of excellent heat fuel shifting at near the rate of mild have been related to the cores of giant elliptical

Star Formation in the Tadpole Nebula tadpole nebula NASA. Dusty emission in the Tadpole nebula, IC 410, lies about 12,000 light-years away in the northern constellation of the Charioteer (Auriga). The cloud of glowing gas is over 100 light-years across, sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from embedded open star cluster NGC 1893. Formed in the interstellar cloud a mere 4 million years ago, bright newly formed cluster stars are seen all around the star-forming nebula. The featured image was taken in infrared light by NASA's Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) satellite.
