The Hubble telescope has captured the monumental image of one of the most spectacular scenes in space: a spiral galaxy radiating the radiance of the eternal night of the universe.
While revolving around Earth's orbit, Hubble looked at the galaxy NGC 2903 and captured the image of the object about 30 million light-years away from the globe, within the constellation of the Lion.

The photo shows a number of new star-forming areas, which emit pink hues, according to Space.com on the 5.5th day of information from the European Space Agency (ESA).
NGC 2903 is one of the survey targets being developed by Hubble, with a total of 145 disk galaxies being studied. The goal of this project is to decipher the relationship between galaxies and black holes that are lurking in the center.
Nearly a quarter of the universe's galaxies are spiral-shaped. Their features are long arms, which contain many solar systems and other features.
Our own Milky Way itself was also listed as a spiral galaxy until the 1960s, when it was transferred to a barred spiral galaxy (SB abbreviation) . Basically, the Milky Way is spiral-shaped, with a bar-shaped region running across the center.
