NASA's Hubble Captures Shockingly Detailed Image Of Stunning Triangulum Galaxy

Hubble's detailed image of nearby galaxy

The Hubble Space Telescope has snapped an incredible image of the Triangulum Galaxy, which is 3 million light years from our own Milky Way Galaxy.

NASA and ESA's Hubble Space Telescope recently obtained a breathtaking, incredibly detailed photo of the Triangulum Galaxy, a spiral galaxy that is a close neighbor of the Milky Way. Triangulum is one of the farthest objects that can be seen with the naked eye in dark skies - it's in the Triangulum constellation, near Andromeda.

The massive mosaic image of the Triangulum galaxy (M33) was released on January 7 and shows one of dozens of our celestial neighbours in our suburb of the universe known as 'the Local Group'.

Astronomers have measured Triangulum to be around 60,000 light-years across and contain around 40 billion stars - by comparison, the Milky Way spans an estimated 150,000 light-years and has hundreds of billions of stars.

The Hubble Space Telescope's mind-blowing new image of the Triangulum Galaxy is nearly as enormous as the galaxy itself. Hubble's vivid view, shared Monday, combines 54 images into one image showing the central part of the galaxy and some of its spiral arms.

The near-perfect distribution of stars within Triangulum has led researchers to believe that the galaxy has somehow avoided any major intergalactic collisions and has remained relatively untouched for aeons.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured an incredibly detailed image of the Triangulum Galaxy.

Hubble, which is run by NASA and the European Space Agency, was used to take a panoramic survey of Triangulum in order to better understand how it formed. "Uncovering the Triangulum galaxy's story will provide an important point of reference in understanding how galaxies develop over time, and the diverse paths that shape what we see today".

"In contrast to the two larger spirals, the Triangulum Galaxy doesn't have a bright bulge at its center and it also lacks a bar connecting its spiral arms to the center", the statement said. When stars are born, they use up material in these clouds of gas and dust, leaving less fuel for new stars to emerge.

The latter is the second most luminous region of ionized hydrogen within the Local Group and it is also among the largest known star formation regions in the group.
