A Spiral within a Spiral - Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1300 NGC 1300 is a barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about 110,000 light-years across, which is just slightly larger than our own galaxy. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster, a cluster of over 200 galaxies.
Galaxy's Core | These NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope snapshots reveal dramatic activities within the core of the galaxy NGC 3079, where a lumpy bubble of hot gas is rising from a cauldron of glowing matter. The picture shows the bubble in the center of the galaxy's disk.
The Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy, is home to one of the largest and most intense regions of star formation known to exist anywhere in our galactic neighborhood — the Tarantula Nebula. This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows both the spindly, spidery filaments of gas that inspired the region’s name, and the intriguing structure of stacked ‘bubbles’ that forms the so-called Honeycomb Nebula.
