Amazing Images From the Hubble Space Telescope



Sombrero galaxy

The Sombrero galaxy is particularly interesting because of how relatively flat it is. Because we’re looking at it at only a 6 degree angle from Earth, it almost looks like just a flat line. This also means that aliens from the Sombrero galaxy might be seeing us from the same angle!
