This snap shows the Majestic Sombrero Galaxy, it’s my favorite galaxy out of the hundreds of billions out there. A brilliant white core is encircled by thick dust lanes in this spiral galaxy, seen edge-on in this view. The galaxy is 50,000 light-years across and 28 million light years from Earth.
Do you think there’s someone over there looking back at us? 🙂 Visit the SETI Institute to learn more on that subject.
