A snapshot of the spiral galaxy M 61 has been published on the Hubble Space Telescope website.
Spiral galaxy M 61, also known as Messier 61, is over 52 million light-years from Earth.
The galaxy has a supermassive black hole that is 5 million times more massive than our Sun. The structure in the picture is a bright central part and spiral arms.
The Messier 61 galaxy is similar in shape and size to our Milky Way. The captured structure was discovered back in 1779.
In order to take these photographs, astronomers used data used by the Hubble orbiting observatory and the VLT (Very Large Telescope).
