ESA/Hubble Photo Release heic1114 - Galaxy Caught Blowing Bubbles


For Your Information:
ESA/Hubble Photo Release heic1114 - Galaxy Caught Blowing Bubbles
For your convenience the first paragraph of the release is provided below:
Hubble’s famous images of galaxies typically show elegant spirals or soft-edged ellipses. But these neat forms are only representative of large galaxies. Smaller galaxies like the dwarf irregular galaxy Holmberg II come in many shapes and types that are harder to classify. This galaxy’s indistinct shape is punctuated by huge glowing bubbles of gas, captured in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
The release, images and videos are available on:
