This undated image released Tuesday, Oct. 20, 1998, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, shows the small spiral galaxy NGC 7742. It is known to be a Seyfert 2 active galaxy, a type of galaxy that is probably powered by a black hole residing in its core. The core is the large yellow portion in the center of the image. The lumpy, thick ring around the core is an area of active starbirth. The ring is about 3,000 light-years from the core. (AP Photo/Hubble Heritage Team) via @AOL_Lifestyle Read…

Astronomers have found a spiral galaxy that may be spinning to the beat of a different cosmic drummer. To the surprise of astronomers, the galaxy, called NGC 4622, appears to be rotating in the opposite direction to what they expected. Pictures from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope helped astronomers determine that the galaxy may be spinning clockwise by showing which side of the galaxy is closer to Earth.

NGC 7714 es una galaxia espiral en la constelación de Piscis. Fue descubierto por John Herschel el 18 de septiembre 183

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a by a passing galaxy, not seen in this Hubble Space Telescope photo. That's because the near-collision between the galaxies ha

Despite being less famous than its galactic cousins, elliptical or spiral galaxies, dwarf irregular galaxies - as captured in this image by the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA / ESA - is a very common type of galaxy in the universe. Known as UGC 4459, this dwarf galaxy lies about 11 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major, a constellation that is also home to the Pinwheel Galaxy (M101), the Owl Nebula (M97) , Messier 81, Messier 82 and other galaxies belonging to M81 group.

NGC 1350 is a spiral galaxy only somewhat larger than our own Milky Way Galaxy. The spiral arms appear to connect together, forming a ring around the center. Want more astronomy? Head over to astronomyforamateurs.com

NGC 1350 is a spiral galaxy only somewhat larger than our own Milky Way Galaxy. The spiral arms appear to connect together, forming a ring around the center.

Spiral Galaxy Messier 81 The magnificent spiral arms of the nearby galaxy Messier 81 are highlighted in this NASA Spitzer Space Telescope image. Located in the northern constellation of Ursa Major (which also includes the Big Dipper), this galaxy is easily visible through binoculars or a small telescope. M81 is located at a distance of 12 million light-years.
