      Sombrero Galaxy (NGC 4594)- the debate is on. Is it a spiral? an elliptical? A spiral wrapped in an elliptical?

    The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared One of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light. The above image, digitally sharpened, shows the infrared glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope

    The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light years ...

    A Hubble Space Telescope image of a star forming. Amazing.

    The Sombrero galaxy was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as spectacular as its appearance. The Sombrero Galaxy spans about 50,000 light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

    This image of supernova remnant 0509-67.5 was made by combining data from two of NASA's Great Observatories. Optical data of SNR 0509-67.5 and its accompanying star field, taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, are composited with X-ray images from the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

    This majestic view taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope tells an untold story of life and death in the Eagle nebula, an industrious star-making factory located 7,000 light-years away in the Serpens constellation. The image shows the region's entire network of turbulent clouds and newborn stars in infrared light.

    The galaxy I Zwicky 18, originally thought to be a young galaxy, actually seems to have formed around the same time as most other galaxies. The bluish-white knots in the heart of the galaxy are two major star-forming regions.


    Exploring Universe: NGC 3627: Revealing Hidden Black Holes The spiral galaxy NGC 3627 is located about 30 million light years from Earth. This composite image includes X-ray data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope (red), and optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Very Large Telescope (yellow).

    Hubble beauty.

    This view across 24,000 light years of the Milky Way Galaxy was taken by Hubble to assess the various ages, in the billions of years, of the galaxy's various stars. Of interest is the small dots that appear between the larger, brighter stars of the Milky Way -- those are numerous distant galaxies beyond our own. (NASA, ESA, and L. Bedin, STScI)
