The spiral galaxy without a jumper NGC 5033 can be seen in the picture from the Hubble Space Telescope. It lives on the territory of the Hounds Dogs at a distance of 40 million light years. The galaxy is about the size of the Milky Way, stretching for 100,000 light years. Her spiral arms are dotted with blue areas, hinting at the active birth of stars. In the blue spots live hot young stars in the process of formation, while the ancients and cooler ones huddle in the reddening center.
Unlike the Milky Way, NGC 5033 does not have a central bar. There is a bright and energetic core - an active galactic core with a feeding on a supermassive black hole. Because of this, received a classification of the Seyfert galaxy. The core glows throughout the electromagnetic spectrum. The released energy indicates that the central black hole is now absorbing stars, dust and gas. The relative proximity to the Earth allows astronomers to study in detail the active core, and the large apparent size in the night sky and brightness make the galaxy accessible for amateur observation.
