NASA shares mesmerising visual of ‘Starburst’ located 12.5 Million light years away from Earth
NASA recently shared an image of galaxy NGC 4449 experiencing a “starburst” which is a very intense period of star formation. This was likely caused by NGC 4449 interacting or merging with a smaller galaxy. NGC 4449 is located about 12.5 million light-years away in the constellation Canes Venatici. The image shows a bright, yellow-white region of light surrounded by pale blue stars and pink regions of star birth.
NASA最近分享了一个星系NGC 4449的图像，该星系正在经历一个“恒星爆发”，这是一个非常强烈的恒星形成时期。这可能是由NGC 4449与一个较小的星系互动或合并引起的。NGC 4449位于Canes Venatici星座，距离我们约1250万光年。该图像显示了一个明亮的黄白色光区，周围是淡蓝色的星星和粉红色的恒星诞生区。
