Hubble detects spiral galaxy with celestial eye

Washington – The Hubble Space Telescope, an international cooperation between NASA and ESA (European Space Agency), has detected a spiral galaxy around 130 million light-years from Earth that showcases a celestial eye. Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) captured the galaxy — NCG 5728 — which appears to be an elegant and luminous, an ESA statement said. WFC3 is extremely sensitive to visible and infrared light and thus beautifully captured the regions of NGC 5728 that are emitting light at those wavelengths. However, there are many other types of light that galaxies such as NGC 5728 emit, which the WFC3 cannot see.
