The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as M104 or NGC 4594) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light years from Earth. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero. by suzette

NGC 7318 (also known as UGC 12099/UGC 12100 or HCG 92d/b) are a pair of collidinggalaxies about 300 million light-years away in the Constellation Pegasus. They are members of the famous Stephan’s Quintet. NGC 7318B has two optical arms emanating from the eastern part of the main body. Since these arms are similar morphologically to the tidal tails of merging galaxies such as NGC 4038/9,

NGC 3576: Glowing Gas in the Milky Way Date: 28 Oct. 2013. A region of glowing gas in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way galaxy, NGC 3576 is located about 9,000 light years from Earth. Such nebulas present a tableau of the drama of the evolution of massive stars, from the formation in vast dark clouds, their relatively brief (a few million years) lives, and the eventual destruction in supernova explosions.
