This galaxy is a stripe in the direction of Leospiral galaxyM 66“he is.Together with the nearby “M65” and “NGC 3628”Triple Galaxy in LeoIt is also called.

M66 and M65 in 1780“astronomer”Charles Messierand in 1784 by an astronomer “William HerschelDiscover NGC 3628. The three galaxies are “interacting galaxies” that exert gravitational forces on each other. M66 features asymmetric spiral arms and a galactic core that deviates slightly from the galactic center, giving it a shape distorted by gravitational interactions.

This image was acquired using the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope.Galaxy details have been processed to make it easier to see.Not only,Actual colors are reproduced…apparently … (NASA scientist)

Also, images of the same galaxy created for different purposes using different wavelength data may look completely different. For example, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) will announce in May 2022 thatpurple mistThe M66 is presented in unusual colors.
