The Image of the Week on the NASA / ESA Hubble Space Telescope website has an attractive snapshot of the object, designated NGC1385.

The named structure is a blocked spiral galaxy. The spiral branches of such objects begin at the ends of the bar, while in normal spiral galaxies they protrude directly from the core. Observations indicate that two-thirds of the spiral galaxies are blocked.

NGC 1385 is located in the Fornox constellation, about 68 million light-years away. It is a faint galaxy in the southern hemisphere of the sky observed in the southern regions of Russia.

The published photo shows a vortex of the universe with many stars. Photo taken with a wide field camera 3 (WFC3), Hubble’s most technologically advanced device. This device is capable of capturing images in the visible, near infrared, ultraviolet, central and central parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
