    Hoag's Object: A Strange Ring Galaxy. On the outside is a ring dominated by bright blue stars, while near the center lies a ball of much redder stars that are likely much older. Between the two is a gap that appears almost completely #universe| http://best-exploring-universe-collections.blogspot.com

    Hoag's Object: A Strange Ring Galaxy. Explanation: Is this one galaxy or two? This question came to light in 1950 when astronomer Art Hoag chanced upon this unusual extragalactic object. On the outside is a ring dominated by bright blue stars, while near the center lies a ball of much redder stars that are likely much older. Between the two is a gap that appears almost completely dark. How Hoag's Object formed remains unknown, although similar objects have now been identified and collectively labeled as a form of ring galaxy. Genesis hypotheses include a galaxy collision billions of years ago and the gravitational effect of a central bar that has since vanished. The above photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in July 2001 reveals unprecedented details of Hoag's Object and may yield a better understanding. Hoag's Object spans about 100,000 light years and lies about 600 million light years away toward the constellation of the Snake (Serpens). Coincidentally, visible in the gap (at about one o'clock) is yet another ring galaxy that likely lies far in the distance. Credit: R. Lucas (STScI/AURA), Hubble Heritage Team, NASA

    Hoag's Object by NASA: This non-typical galaxy is known as a ring galaxy, and was discovered in 1950 by astronomer Art Hoag, who initially thought it to be a planetary nebula. Serendipitously, from the perspective of our solar system what appears to be an even more distant ring galaxy is plainly visible within the gap between this galaxy's central body of mostly yellow stars and the outer ring of blue stars. via wikipedia. #Ring_Galaxy #Hogs_Object #Astronomy

A káosz gyermekei vagyunk, és a változás mélystruktúrája a felbomlás. Lényegében nincs semmi más, csak a bomlás és a káosz feltartóztathatatlan áradata. Célnak nyoma sincs; semmi nem maradt ezen az irányultságon kívül. Ha tárgyilagosan pillantunk az univerzum mélyébe, kénytelenek vagyunk elfogadni ezt a kilátástalanságot. Peter Atkins

Galaxy NGC 4594 ( a.k.a. M104, a.k.a. The Sombrero Galaxy) at approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.
