  A Wanderer Dances the Dance of Stars and Space
A Wanderer Dances the Dance of Stars and Space
Image credit: NASA/ESA/Hubble

Uploader comment: The Hubble Space Telescope captured a spectacular image of the bright star-forming ring that surrounds the heart of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1097. In this image, the larger-scale structure of the galaxy is barely visible: its comparatively dim spiral arms, which surround its heart in a loose embrace, reach out beyond the edges of this frame.
