The Hubble space telescope took a picture of a galaxy that moves with an incredibly high speed. Photo posted on the official website of the Observatory.
This view shows the spiral galaxy NGC 7513. Located approximately 60 million light-years, it is in the constellation Sculptor in the southern hemisphere.
As reported, this galaxy is moving with astonishing speed — 1564 kilometers per second. And it moves in the direction from us.
For comparison, the Earth revolves around the Sun at a speed of about 30 kilometers per second.

While some galaxies such as the milky Way and the Andromeda galaxy are in gravitational attraction to each other and eventually merge together, the vast majority of galaxies in our Universe seem to move away from each other. This phenomenon is due to the expansion of the Universe.
