Hubble Finds Jets and Explosions Spiral Galaxy: This new image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a spiral galaxy in the constellation of Sculptor some 13 million light-years away from Earth. It is one of the brightest galaxies in the Sculptor Group, one of the closest groups of galaxies to the Local Group — the group of galaxies containing our galaxy, the Milky Way and the Magellanic Clouds.

The image shows its spiral arms and small central bulge. Unlike some other spirals, this one doesn’t have a very pronounced spiral structure, and its shape is further muddled by the mottled pattern of dark dust that stretches across the frame. The occasional burst of bright pink can be seen in the galaxy, highlighting stellar nurseries containing newly-forming baby stars.

The stars are cool but they are not what they look like right now we are just now getting those Images because it takes billions of years for the light to reach earth
