The Famous Sombrero Galaxy

The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 104, M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light-years from Earth. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero. Astronomers initially thought that the halo was small and light, indicative of a spiral galaxy, but Spitzer found that the halo around the Sombrero Galaxy is larger and more massive than previously thought, indicative of a giant elliptical galaxy.

وأشوف في رمشك جيوش الإبادة.. وأشوف في عينك مدارات وأفلاك..

الشاعر: فزاع ..

Translation:
I see armies of destruction in your lashes ..
I see galaxies and stars in your eyes ..
