In this image by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, an unusual, ghostly green blob of gas appears to float near a normal-looking spiral galaxy. The bizarre object, dubbed Hanny's Voorwerp (Hanny's Object in Dutch), is the only visible part of a
THE MAJESTIC SOMBRERO GALAXY 28 million light years from earth and light years across . Photo By: NASA Hubble Space Telescope.-- Wow, that is an amazingly large galaxy! I love how this photo has it appearing on an angle.
HubbleSite - Picture Album: The Antennae Galaxies/NGC These two spiral galaxies, drawn together by gravity, started to interact a few hundred million years ago. The Antennae Galaxies are the nearest and youngest examples of a pair of colliding galaxies.
NGC or "The Fireworks Galaxy," is a neighbor of our Milky Way galaxy, located approximately 10 million light-years away in Cepheus. This image was captured with the Spitzer space telescope's Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on June
