Cómo es la inusual galaxia circular que los astrónomos acaban de fotografiar  El llamado objeto Hoag es una galaxia inusual en forma de anillo descubierta por el astrónomo Arthur Allen Hoag en 1950. Aparece como un anillo casi perfecto de estrellas jóvenes azules rodeando un núcleo de estrellas amarillas más viejas y está a unos 600 millones de años luz. BBC

This new Hubble image is centered on NGC 5793, a spiral galaxy over 150 million light-years away in the constellation of Libra. This galaxy has two particularly striking features: a beautiful dust lane and an intensely bright center — much brighter than that of our own galaxy, or indeed those of most spiral galaxies we observe.

Hubble Peers at the Heart of NGC 5793

This galactic fireworks display is taking place in NGC 4258 (also known as M106), a spiral galaxy like the Milky Way. This galaxy is famous, however, for something that our galaxy doesn't have -- two extra spiral arms that glow in X-ray, optical, and radio light. These features, or anomalous arms, are not aligned with the plane of the galaxy, but instead intersect with it.

The universe is filled with galaxies. But to see them astronomers must look out beyond the stars of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. This colorful Hubble Space Telescopic portrait features spiral galaxy NGC 6384, about 80 million light-years away in the direction of the constellation Ophiuchus.

NGC 2276 and NGC 2300 are "boundary" targets in that they are the northernmost objects in the New General Catalog of space stuff. NGC 2276 is a beautiful spiral galaxy that is punctuated by pink star forming regions. In fact it has one of the highest rates of star formation that has been measured. Its neighbor, NGC 2300, appears as a regular elliptical galaxy that shows some evidence of shells (and perhaps former structure).

This Hubble image shows the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 4206, which is located about 70 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Virgo.

Just Space Hubble Catches a Dusty Spiral in Virgo : This magnificent new image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC located about 70 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Virgo.

It is one of the more massive galaxies known. A mere 46 million light-years distant, spiral galaxy NGC 2841 can be found in the northern constellation of Ursa Major. This sharp view of the gorgeous island universe shows off a striking yellow nucleus and galactic disk. Dust lanes, small, pink star-forming regions, and young blue star clusters are embedded in the patchy, tightly wound spiral arms.

https://flic.kr/p/iKmjBG | Hubble Eyes Galaxy as Flat as a Pancake | Located some 25 million light-years away, this new Hubble image shows spiral galaxy ESO 373-8. Together with at least seven of its galactic neighbors, this galaxy is a member of the NGC 2997 group. We see it side-on as a thin, glittering streak across the sky, with all its contents neatly aligned in the same plane.  We see so many galaxies like this — flat, stretched-out pancakes — that our brains barely process their…
