Space Saturday VI

I know, I know. It is Sunday. I think I will just be using the term “Saturday” very loosely. Today on this lovely Saturday, I bring you: NGC 3370!

NGC 3370 is a spiral galaxy similar to our own Milky Way in the constellation Leo some 100 million light years away. One thing I really like about this photo is the host of other, quite beautiful, galaxies in the background that appear in quite vivid detail.

Hubble Site also has other pictures of NGC 3370 that you can check out (including some wonderful detailed shots). SEDS is also a good place to check out other information on NGC 3370.

Since school is approaching, I am headed out to enjoy a few days of camping with the fam. Because of this, I won’t be around, but feel free to take a look at the other things going on around my blog. I have a few posts on Katrina that you may want to check out: Thoughts on Katrina, Katrina Relief Contributions, Katrina Satellite Imagery, and Moore Offers His Wisdom (this one especially if you like to argue). Keep the donations coming in and log your contributions as part of the Blog Relief Weekend (raised $730,000 so far)!

Have a great week!
Ή χάρις του κυρίου ημων Ίησου Χριστου μεθ’ υμων.
