The eye at the center of this galaxy is actually a monstrous black hole surrounded by a ring of stars. The galaxy, called NGC 1097 and located 50 million light-years away, is spiral-shaped like our Milky Way, with long, spindly arms of stars.
NGC 1300 by Steven Marx. A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster.
A unique NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope view of the disk galaxy NGC 5866 tilted nearly edge-on to our line-of-sight. Hubble's sharp vision reveals a crisp dust lane dividing the galaxy into two halves.
Astronomer Adam Block, with guest astronomer Bob Taylor, obtained this image of galaxy NGC 1398 in October This barred spiral galaxy NGC 1398 lies 65 million light-years away in the constellation of Fornax, in the Fornax cluster of galaxies.
An image released on October 2011 show the Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow).
Spindle Galaxy, NGC This relatively bright galaxy is located about ly away in the constellation Draco. It is classified as a lenticular galaxy, but due to the edge-on view, it is difficult to be exact as the dust disk is more common w/spiral galaxies
