NGC 660 Polar Ring Galaxy about 45 mly distant. It has a belt of gas & stars…

A mere 12.5 million light-years from Earth, irregular dwarf galaxy NGC 4449 lies within the confines of Canes Venatici, the constellation of the Hunting Dogs. About the size of our Milky Way's satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud, NGC 4449 is undergoing an intense episode of star formation, evidenced by its wealth of young blue star clusters, pinkish star forming regions, and obscuring dust clouds in this deep color portrait.

Who knew that 1,000 years could be considered young?! This black hole is estimated to be about 1,000, while the age of an average black hole in the Milky Way ranges 17,000-21,000 years old. (Photo: X-ray: NASA/CXC/MIT/L.Lopez et al; Infrared: Palomar; Radio: NSF/NRAO/VLA)

Scientists May Get Best View Yet of a Black Hole in Action BY ADAM MANN 03.14.14 It’s the cosmic event of the year. Right now, telescopes all over the world are turning to our galaxy’s center, where for the first time ever they may have a front-row look at a supermassive black hole consuming a gas cloud.

Scientists May Get Best View Yet of a Black Hole in Action

Scientists May Get Best View Yet of a Black Hole in Action. This year telescopes all over the world are turning to our galaxy’s center, where for the first time ever they may have a front-row look at a supermassive black hole consuming a gas cloud.

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

Lightning in space:  A single bolt of lightning is 50 percent longer than the entire Milky Way galaxy.Scientists have observed lightning on Mars and Saturn but didn't know that lightning could occur in the middle of space, with a force equal to a trillion lightning bolts, or to use the proper scientific terms, 50 million tons of electricity.  This insane electrical current was discovered near galaxy 3C303 firing a massive jet of electrified matter 150,000 light-years into outer space.

That electrical current was discovered near galaxy It's not doing anything that cool . it's just firing a massive jet of electrified matter light-years into outer space. RTh 6 Most Mind-Blowing Things Ever Discovered in Space Cracked.
