The telescope took a picture of a cosmic galaxy from the constellation of Andromeda, similar to a cinnamon bun

The Hubble telescope captured a picture of the space galaxy UGC 12588, which is located in the constellation Andromeda on November 16 .

The press service of the observatory reports.

Located in the constellation Andromeda in the northern hemisphere, this galaxy is classified as a spiral galaxy. However, unlike the classical image of a spiral galaxy, it has huge arms of stars and gas in UGC 12588, very faint, imperceptible, and tightly wrapped around its center.

These spiral arms are clearly visible in the blue stars at the edges of the galaxy, which highlight regions where new star formation is likely to occur.

“The galaxy itself is more like a cinnamon bun than a megastructure of stars and gas in space due to its circular, white and non-structural center,” they write in the message.

Recall that a picture of the galaxy NGC 34, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope earlier in the boundless darkness of space, looks more like an otherworldly bioluminescent creature from the depths of the ocean than a galaxy.
