Galaxy NGC 4845 Hubble Space Telescope NASA/ESA This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the spiral galaxy NGC 4845,located over 65 million light-years (estimated) away in the constellation of Virgo (the Virgin). The galaxy’s orientation clearly reveals the galaxy’s striking spiral structure, a flat and dust-mottled disk surrounding a bright galactic bulge. NGC 4845‘s glowing midpoint hosts a gigantic version of a Black Hole, known as a supermassive Black Hole. The presence of a Black Hole in a distant galaxy like Galaxy NGC 4845 can be inferred from its effect on the galaxy’s innermost stars, these stars experience a strong

LENSED QUASAR

LENSED QUASAR Satellite: Hubble Space Telescope Depicts: RXJ1131-1231 Copyright: ESA/Hubble, NASA, Suyu et al. RXJ1131-1231 is among the five best-lensed quasars discovered to date. The foreground galaxy smears the image of the background quasar into a bright arc (left) and creates a total of four images – three of which can be seen within the arc.                 LENSED QUASAR  | Hubble Space Telescope HE0435-1223 is among the five best-lensed quasars discovered to date. The foreground galaxy creates four almost evenly distributed images of the distant quasar around it.   Awesome Nature |galaxy |spiral galaxies |

Galaxy Seen side-on

Galaxy Seen side-on Galaxy Seen side-on | The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has produced a sharp image of NGC 4634, a spiral galaxy seen exactly side-on. Its disc is slightly warped by ongoing interactions with a nearby galaxy, and it is crisscrossed by clearly defined dust lanes and bright nebulae. NGC 4634, which lies around 70 million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Coma Berenices, is one of a pair of interacting galaxies. Its neighbour, NGC 4633, lies just outside the upper right corner of the frame and is visible in wide-field views of the galaxy. While it may
