Here is the “hidden galaxy” that appears.
This is glorious Hubble Space Telescope The image shows the spiral galaxy IC 342, also known as Caldwell 5. Whatever you call it galaxyScientists have found it somewhat difficult to notice due to obstacles in its path, which earned it its nickname “invisible,” according to NASA.
The Hubble telescope can look through the debris, to an extent, because the telescope has infrared capabilities. Infrared light is scattered less by dust and allows a clearer view of the galaxy beyond interstellar matter.
This shimmering front view of the galactic center displays tendrils of dust intertwined in dramatic arms that wrap around a bright core of hot gas and starsNASA wrote about the photo.
“This nucleus is a specific type of region called a H II nucleus — a region of atomic hydrogen ionization. These regions are the cradle of stellar energy where thousands of stars can form in a few million years.”
NASA said that blue stars ionize or activate hydrogen surrounding their birthplace due to the emission of ultraviolet radiation. The galaxy would be one of the brightest in our sky if there wasn’t a lot of dust in its path.
IC 342 is also relatively close in galactic terms, only 11 million light years from Earth. Our galaxy is about half the diameter of our Milky Way (its diameter is 50,000 light years), which also makes it relatively large.
