If you are a person who likes to gaze at the sky, read outer space, study celestial bodies, or search the Internet to extract images or videos of galaxies, then NASA’s new post on Instagram will shock and smile you. Shared on the official Instagram handle of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the image of the post is “Interacting Galaxy Arp 273”. In the image, a group of spiral galaxies seems to create a shape similar to a cosmic rose. Between the two, a bunch of bright stars flickered violently, giving the impression of sparkling jewels.
NASA captioned the post: “A cosmic rose, just for you! This stunning image of the interacting galaxy Arp 273 was #OTD released 10 years ago. It is about 300 million light years away from the galaxy. Far away, this “rose” made up of galaxies is in the constellation Andromeda.”
The position once again fascinated NASA’s followers and received more than 160,000 “likes” and many reactions. When one of the users wanted to know whether the galaxies were “colliding?”, the other user wanted her to “allow this sparkling rose to accompany me forever…”. The third user thought it was “romantic”, and the fourth user gave the “rose” to someone and said “I love you”.
Arp 273 includes two spiral galaxies-the larger one is called UGC 1810, and the other galaxy below it is called UGC 1813. According to NASA, Arp 273 is located in the constellation Andromeda, just as NASA explained.
NASA has shared photos and videos of space on its social media handle time and time again. About a week ago, the agency shared some stunning images of the Earth viewed from space. The image shared on NASA’s official Instagram page was taken by NASA astronauts from a vantage point on the International Space Station. NASA captioned the photo: “Whether we are on land or in space, we are all unified by this little blue planet-this is worth celebrating.”
In March, NASA shared a clip featuring fascinating notes generated from astronomical data collected from outer space, with the caption: “It’s not the end until the Cat’s Eye Nebula sings.” NASA converts the data into sound format. Therefore, its followers can hear the data, not just visualize it. For starters, the “Cat’s Eye Nebula” is the nickname for the planetary nebula NGC 6543.
