The picture from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a beautiful spiral galaxy NGC 6744. It looks like the Milky Way, but it is much larger (extends 200,000 light years and our galaxy 100000 light years).
NGC 6744 reminds the Milky Way in certain aspects. It also has a remarkable central region, filled with ancient yellow stars. Moving from the galactic nucleus, one can notice parts of dusty spiral arms colored in pink (areas of active star birth) and blue (young stars) shades. These sites signal that the galaxy is still active.
In 2005, NGC 6744 noticed 2005at supernovae, which once again confirmed galactic activity. SN 2005at - Ic-type supernova. It was formed after the collapse of a massive star and the loss of the hydrogen envelope.
