Hubble Space Telescope Snaps ‘In Bloom’ Spiral Galaxy in Space

Posted by in category: space

The Hubble Space Telescope recently spotted a gorgeous “in bloom” spiral galaxy and it shows vibrant star formation pockets that look like red flowers.

The spiral galaxy, which is named NGC 972, was shared by the Hubble Space Telescope on Monday, July 1. NGC 972’s orange-pink glow comes from hydrogen gas reacting to intense light beaming outwards from neighboring newborn stars, said a Hubble Space Telescope press release. These bright patches, which are scattered near various cosmic dust streams, are “blooming” like roses in NGC 972.
