Galaxy Hat in infrared

The galaxy hat became very famous because it was the first Hubble image that was distributed.

NGC 4594 is a typical lenticular galaxy (form) that is nothing more than a disk of gas topped by a bright center is a black hole that absorbs the gas disk clusters. The size of this galaxy is between 90,000 and 150,000 years light (diameter) and about 29 million light-years from here.

That if curious is the infrared image that reveals only the gas clusters shining because of the energy reflected from the center.

Anyway, it’s nice and amazing to see what really needs and that the naked eye can not see.
