Hubble Space Telescope Spots A Strange Shape Galaxy

The bright Red "blossoms" that result from star formation pop out in the latest image of an unusual galaxy.

Hubble Space Telescope took a new photograph. Hubble Space Telescope has captured an irregular dwarf galaxy known as NGC 1156. 

The galaxy is about 25 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Aries; NGC 1156 boasts unique structures that are not seen in galaxies.

It is a "marvel in galactic morphology," per a press release issued by the European Space Agency (ESA) as a partner in the Hubble Space Telescope mission.

"Its bright stars create the illusion of an elliptical galaxy, but it doesn't have the typical "winding" structure,

ESA officials wrote in the statement that announced the latest Hubble image in August. 22. 

"Yet it also emits an infrared glow, similar to an elliptical one and its core of redder, older stars."

The sparkling red blossoms scattered throughout the image are regions of intense star formation, which fuels the galaxy's high energy. 

The hydrogen gas ionized that escapes from these star formations give an orange glow. 

The galaxies are also classified as isolating since there are no other galaxies near enough to affect their unusual shape or star formation, as per the statement.
