The Hubble Space Telescope website has published an image of the spiral galaxy NGC 5037 from an unusual angle.
The spiral galaxy in the photo is located in the constellation Virgo, about 150 million light-years from Earth.
Note that spiral galaxies are the most common type of galaxies in the Universe, but each is unique and has a unique shape.
The galaxy NGC 5037 in the photo is captured from an unusual perspective: it is shown from the edge with a tilt towards the observer from Earth.
The image shows a bright central part and spiral arms. The latter are gigantic star-forming regions.
The subject was captured with Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) aboard the Hubble Observatory.
