This image was first released in July 2019. There is a black hole at the core of the galaxy, but it is not very fine or rather malnourished and is surrounded by a thin compact disk of stars, gas and dust. However, the gravity of this black hole is so strong that whatever comes close to it gets swept away in the disk.
According to NASA’s Hubble team, the weight of this ‘monster’ black hole is about 250 million times the mass of our Sun.
Significantly, the Hubble Telescope works continuously to keep an eye on the events in space. Its team then releases the photos on social media when it finds an image to create curiosity for astronomers.
Recently, it shared the image of a spiral galaxy named Caldwell 5. This galaxy is located about 11 million light years away from us. At its center is an active star nursery, which can produce thousands of stars in a few million years. The Caldwell 5 Galaxy is pretty shiny though. But it is covered with the gas of the universe, dark dust and bright stars. According to scientists, it would have been one of the brightest galaxies in our sky, if it had not been covered by so many shells. It is claimed that the existence of this galaxy is billions of years old.
British astronomer William Frederick Denning discovered this galaxy in the early 1890s. It is located in the constellation Camelopardalis, which can be best viewed during early winter.
