The Sombrero galaxy was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as spectacular as its appearance. The Sombrero Galaxy spans about 50,000 light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

The Sombrero Galaxy - voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called are as spectacular as its appearance. The Sombrero Galaxy spans about light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

Sombrero galaxy

Sombrero Galaxy in Virgo Cluster – Hubble optical image shows a bulge of starlight partially blocked by a rim of dust, as this spiral galaxy is being observed edge on.

The Sombrero Galaxy is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light-years from Earth. #love

n-a-s-a: “ The Majestic Sombrero Galaxy Photo By: NASA Hubble Space Telescope ” ~This is why I frigging LOVE space. Your understanding of spatial positioning is irrelevant in space. Space is the OG BAMF.

This floating ring is the size of a galaxy. In fact, it is part of the Sombrero Galaxy, one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infra-red light. The above image, digitally sharpened, shows the infra-red glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope, superposed in false-color on an existing image taken by NASA's Hubble Space

NASA Spitzer Space Telescope - Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared - one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies.

The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 104, M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located approximately 28 million light-years (8.6 Mpc) from Earth.

Never mind that this is awesome. Never mind that this is beautiful and luminous and lovely and right. This...is called the SOMBRERO GALAXY. Our universe has a galaxy named for a sombrero. I am slain.

My first attempt at a space cat!

Messier the Sombrero Galaxy, is a floating ring the size of a galaxy made up of dust that glows in infrared light. It is light years wide, and 28 million light years from Earth. Photo by Hubble.

The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light years from Earth. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero.

The Sombrero Galaxy.This massive, beautiful galaxy is over 50,000 light years from tip to tip. Where it gets its name is pretty obvious.

Spitzer found that halo around the Sombrero Galaxy is larger and more massive than previously thought, indicative of a giant elliptical galaxy . The galaxy has an apparent magnitude of + 9.0, making it easily visible with amateur telescope, and it's considered by some authors to be the brightest galaxy within of 10 megaparsecs of the Milky Way. The large bulge, the central supermassive black hole, and the dust lane all attract the attention of professional astronomers. (2015)

Beautiful Sombrero Galaxy - This is a real picture, taken by the Hubble telescope. This beautiful galaxy has a huge 'dust' ring around it, but it has very few stars in the center. Instead, the core has a super-massive black hole.
