Hi all,

An image of NGC 6946, the Fireworks galaxy has been uploaded. This galaxy has several peculiarities, like the star N6946-BH1, a yellow supergiant that increased its brightness during 6 years and then disappeared completely, compacting its core into a black hole. NGC 6946 is seen as strongly reddened by the thick cloud of dust close to the galactic plane.

You can find the images, as well as more info at:
