Hubble has captured a snapshot of a spiral galaxy with nearby objects

The Hubble space telefax has captured a snapshot of a spiral galaxy with nearby objects.

NGC 4680 is the galaxy in the picture, it is located in the constellation Virgo. Type: S/P.

The photograph does not show a clearly defined structure of the object, which is why it is sometimes considered as a lenticular galaxy. This type of galaxy is between elliptical and spiral in the Hubble classification.

In addition, there are neighboring ones next to the galaxy. It should be noted that a supernova SN 1997bp exploded in the galaxy NGC 4680 in 1997.

Image captured with Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). The camera is capable of capturing images in the visible, near-infrared, near, and mid ultraviolet regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
