The space telescope “Hubble” has made the so far most detailed recording of the triangle nebula, a neighboring galaxy to our milky way. The European Hubble-center in Garching, near Munich, published the image has 665 million image points (pixels) and is composed of 54 individual images.
the mosaic to be produced, examine the astronomers so-called star-forming regions in the small spiral galaxy in Gas and dust, new suns, such as the center explained.
The triangle fog (catalogue numbers M33 and NGC 598) is the third largest spiral galaxy of the so-called Local group, after Andromeda galaxy and the milky way. It contains about 40 billion stars, and some of the active star factories. It has a diameter of about 60,000 light-years. For comparison: The diameter of our galaxy is 100,000 light years, the diameter of the Andromeda galaxy at 200,000 light-years.
The triangle nebula, found in the constellation of the triangle in the southern sky, is located roughly three million light-years from the milky way. Under good conditions of observation of the spiral galaxy to already be seen with the naked eye as a milky stain.
