First VLT Colour Photo of a Strange Galaxy. This is a colour photo from the VLT that shows NGC a member of the so-called Centaurus chain of galaxies in the southern constellation of that name.

NGC 4866 is a lenticular galaxy located 80 million light-years away in the constellation Virgo. It was discovered by British astronomer Sir William Herschel on January 14, 1787.

NGC 4725 is a member of the Coma-Sculptor galaxy cluster and lies 12.6 Mpc away from Earth (Gibson et al. 2009, ApJ, 512, 48). This galactic gem is believed to be tidally interacting with the neighbour galaxy NGC 4747 (outside the pictured field), as a neutral hydrogen plume pointing towards NGC 4725 suggests. In the optical,NGC 4725 is dominated by a single spiral arm that seems to originate from an inner ring rich in newborn stars and conspicuous HII regions (in red in the image).

NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole.

NGC 1291 (also NGC 1269) - This ring galaxy located about 33 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus was imaged by the Spitzer Space Telescope. The red outer ring is filled with new stars heating up and igniting dust that glows with infrared light

It might look like a spoked wheel or even a "Chakram" weapon wielded by warriors like "Xena," from the fictional TV show, but this ringed galaxy is actually a vast place of stellar life. A newly released image from NASA's .
