A new image! NGC 55-Caldwell 72

Hi all,


A new image has been uploaded! This time, it is a galaxy. As medium-sized barred Magellanic spiral galaxy, located at only 7 Million light-years. This is why, even being not a large galaxy, we can see a lot of detail in it and many individual clusters and even stars. It is seen edge-on, and despite having many red Hydrogen clouds, the rate of star formation is low.

You can find it at:

NGC 55. Caldwell 72
