Provavelmente uma das mais belas imagens espaciais, NGC 604 é uma nebulosa de grandes dimensões, repleta de estrelas em formação. Medindo aproximadamente 1500 anos-luz de comprimento, NGC 604 é uma verdadeira maternidade de estrelas, cem vezes maior que a nebulosa de Órion M42.

While most spiral galaxies, including our own Milky Way, have two or more spiral arms, NGC 4725 has only one. In this sharp color composite image, the solo spira mirabilis seems to wind from a prominent ring of bluish, newborn star clusters and red tinted star forming regions. The odd galaxy also sports obscuring dust lanes a yellowish central bar structure composed of an older population of stars.
