The U.S. National Aeronautics and space research presented a new picture of the galaxy NGC 4848.
As the portal Scitechdaily, a notable feature of many spiral galaxies is the set of curved spiral arms.
In a new photo shot by the Hubble space telescope, shows stunning silver blue spiral arms of the galaxy NGC 4848, located in the constellation coma Berenices.
In the picture you can see not only the inner part of the spiral arms, containing hundreds of thousands of young bright blue stars, but are extremely weak thin tails of the outer spiral arms.
It is noted that this spiral galaxy was first discovered in 1865 by the German astronomer Heinrich Louis d Arrah, who was also one of the discoverers of the planet Neptune.

If you are in the Northern hemisphere with a large telescope, you can just see the ghostly appearance of this faint galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices (coma Berenices).
As previously reported, in June, the Hubble telescope took pictures of two nebulae: NGC 7027 and NGC 6302, also known as the Butterfly nebula.
In addition, Hubble also found interesting dwarf galaxy, which is located in the Local void space of the void, opened in 1987.
