Spiral Galaxy NGC 1350 - Universe Today
The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope took this incredible image of galaxy NGC 1350, which is located 85 million light years away in the Fornax constellation. Astronomers classify it as an Sa(r) type galaxy, which means it's a barred spiral with two central regions. It is 130,000 light years across, so it's a little larger than our own Milky Way.
