Spiral NGC 1300 Galaksisi

This image is of NGC considered to be a prototypical barred spiral galaxy. Barred spiral galaxies do not spiral all the way into the centre, but are connected to the two ends of a straight bar of stars.

NGC 4526 : Lenticular Galaxy - Located about 55 million light-years away in the Virgo Cluster, this galaxy has a supermassive blackhole that is around 450 million times the mass of our Sun. The disk of dust has a spin rate of about 155.34 mps / 250 km/per sec. Ground-based observations have shown about a quarter of the lenticular galaxies in the cluster seem to have rapidly rotating disks in their centers - NASA/ESA/Hubble - acknowledgement : Judy Schmidt
