The Hubble Telescope has captured the galaxy NGC 2336, which is located in the constellation Giraffe. This was reported by the press service of the Hubble Observatory.
The object is located 100 million light years from Earth, and its diameter is about 200,000 light years. According to astronomers, NGC 2336 is a “large, beautiful and blue” galaxy.
“Its spiral arms sparkle with young stars visible in their bright blue light. On the contrary, older stars dominate in the redder central part of the galaxy,” the researchers note.
