Hubble Image of a Week – Elliptical Galaxy NGC 2768

This newly expelled Hubble picture shows elliptical universe NGC 2768, that is located 60 million light years away.

Like a beacon in a mist a radiant core of NGC 2768 solemnly fades outwards to a lifeless white mist in this picture taken by a NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

NGC 2768 is an elliptical universe in a constellation of Ursa Major (The Great Bear). It is a outrageous gold of stars, dominated by a splendid executive region, where a supermassive black hole feasts on a consistent tide of gas and dirt being fed to it by a galactic host.

The universe is also noted by a distinguished plume of dirt reaching out from a core and fibbing perpendicular to a galaxy’s plane. This dirt conceals a symmetrical, s-shaped span of jets that are being constructed by a supermassive black hole as it feeds.
