Hubble captures a cosmic maelstrom of stars

A snapshot of the object NGC 1385 has been published on the Hubble Space Telescope website.

Structure NGC 1385 lies approximately 68 million light-years away in the constellation Fornax. It is a faint constellation of the southern hemisphere of the sky that is observed in the southern regions of Russia.

Galaxy NGC 1385 is a member of the NGC 1395 group of galaxies. In addition to NGC 1385, the group also includes 32 more galaxies.

The photograph shows a barred spiral galaxy. The spiral branches of such objects begin at the ends of the bar, whereas in ordinary spiral galaxies they exit directly from the core.

The picture literally shows the cosmic vortex, which is decorated with stars.
