NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope snapped a stunning image of a galaxy some 50 million light-years away.

Known as NGC 3175, is the galaxy located in the constellation of Antlia (the Pump).

“The galaxy can be seen cutting across the frame in this image the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, with a mix of bright patches of glowing gas, dark lanes of dust and bright nucleus, and the dancing, the pinwheeling of the arms to come together to paint a beautiful, heavenly scene,” said the European Space Agency (ESA) in a statement posted on NASA’s web site.
