Galaxy of the Day

Nuthin happening out here, today. Here's my GALAXY OF THE DAY:

I thought the red star set off this anti-clockwise, unbarred spiral, nicely.

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Nice! So... what kind of galaxy is it?

The Pirate said...

Q-it's um, an anti-clockwise unbarred spiral, I guess.

I don't know much beyond how we classify them, which is pretty simple-shape and spin. I guess I could also say from it's redshift, it's really far away, too.

These galaxy pictures are just the coolest. All me can say is wow.

It would've been awesome though to have seen the dolphins swimming along-side while having morning coffee. The stuff dreams is made off. {{ At least for me anyways }}
