We'll Ride the Spiral to the End
Monday, Sept. 30, 2013: Spiral galaxy NGC 4274 lies 60 million light years away from us in the constellaion of Coma Berenices. It contains much star fuel, in the form of the gas and dust that give the galaxy’s disk a fluffy appearance. The spiral arms serve as the nurseries that give rise to stars, traced by lines of luminous young blue stars.
