NGC 300 is a spiral galaxy that lies around 6.07 million light-years away from Earth in the southern constellation of Sculptor while it is receding from us at about 144 kilometers per second.  NGC 300 is a relatively diffuse spiral galaxy with a poorly defined core. Young hot blue stars dominate the outer spiral arms of the galaxy while the older stars congregate in the inner regions. Gases heated by hot young stars and shocks due to winds from massive stars and supernova explosions appear…

This artist’s impression depicts the newly discovered stellar-mass black hole in the spiral galaxy NGC 300. The black hole has a mass of about twenty times the mass of the Sun and is associated with a Wolf–Rayet star; a star that will become a black hole itself. Thanks to the observations performed with the FORS2 instrument mounted on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, astronomers have confirmed an earlier hunch that the black hole and the Wolf–Rayet star dance around each other in a diabolic waltz

University of Washington astronomers have identified a rare type of supernova 'impostor' in a nearby galaxy, with implications for how scientists look at the short, complex lives of massive stars.
