Hubble showed a photo of a galaxy that is different from the rest

A giant elliptical galaxy can be seen in a new image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope

UGC 10143.It lies at the center of the Abell 2147 galaxy cluster, about 486 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Serpens. UGC 10143 is the largest and brightest object in Abell 2147. The cluster itself may be part of a much larger supercluster of galaxies called Hercules.

Bright center of UGC 10143, dim extended halo,the absence of spiral arms and star formation dust lanes distinguishes it from an ordinary elliptical galaxy. However, she still belongs to this class. Recall that elliptical galaxies are a class of galaxies with a spherical structure without any features. It is one of the four main types of galaxies described by Edwin Hubble, along with spiral, lenticular and irregular.

Image of UGC 10143 is part of the reviewglobular star clusters. They help astronomers trace the origin and evolution of their galactic neighbors. To date, the Hubble survey has looked at the distribution, brightness, and abundance of metals in more than 35,000 globular star clusters.

Data was used to create the imageHubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys. Blue represents visible blue light and reddish orange represents near infrared light.
