A TEAM OF EUROPEAN ASTRONOMERS using the Hubble Space Telescope have created a spectacular image of a spiral galaxy.
NASA says that no two spiral galaxies are exactly the same. The space agency says that the image of NGC 3982 shows “pink star-forming regions of glowing hydrogen, newborn blue star clusers, and obscuring dust lanes that provide the raw material for future generations of stars”.
This galaxy is located some 68m light years away and is believed to be one-third of the size of the Milky Way galaxy.
The images used were captured between March 2000 and August last year.
