The Hubble Telescope has captured a photograph of a spiral galaxy designated NGC 7678.
The structure in the constellation Pegasus is located 164 million light-years from Earth.
It was discovered in 1784 by the famous British astronomer of German origin William Herschel.
Spiral galaxy NGC 7678 is comparable to the Milky Way. It is approximately 115,000 light-years across. The presented image clearly shows the characteristic structure of objects of this type.
It should be noted that NGC 7678 is included in the so-called Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies – a catalog of peculiar galaxies created by the American astronomer Halton Arp.
In this list, the galaxy appears under the designation Arp 28, and its feature is the presence of “one heavy arm”.
