On the Hubble's official Twitter page, NASA shared an incredibly detailed (https://twitter.com/NASAHubble/status/1129024127929638912) image of NGC 4485, a galaxy located 25 million light-years away in the northern constellation Canes Venatici
(the Hunting Dogs), taken by the Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3).
NGC 4485 lies 25 million light-years away in the Northern constellation Canes Venatici
(the Hunting Dogs).
Messier 3 in Canes Venatici
holds fifth place, sporting a bright core and fairly bright, 9%' halo when viewed through the refractor at 37x.
According to NASA's report, '[the] comet then passes through the constellations Corona Borealis (the Northern Crown), Bootes (the Herdsman), Canes Venatici
(Bootes' hunting dogs) and Ursa Major.
The older eruption is plowing a layer of glowing hydrogen gas from the center of NGC 5195, which sits about 26 million light-years away in the constellation Canes Venatici
. "It's the best snowplow of shocked material I've ever seen," said Schlegel, of the University of Texas at San Antonio.
M51 (NGC 5194) The Whirlpool Galaxy is a grand design spiral galaxy located in the constellation of Canes Venatici
, "the Hunting Dogs".
The exploding star is in a relatively empty portion of the sky labeled "anonymous" in the faint constellation Canes Venatici
. Home to a handful of galaxies, Canes Venatici
is near the constellation Ursa Major, best known for the Big Dipper.
Mention the words 'Canes Venatici
' and 'galaxy' to many amateur astronomers and Messier 51, the Whirlpool, springs to mind.
Because it's not plotted on the map, look about halfway from Beta Leonis to Alpha (a) Canum Venaticorum, the brightest star in the constellation Canes Venatici
, the Hunting Dogs.
: A small, northern constellation, its name is Latin for "hunting dogs".
Messier 51 in Canes Venatici
is an interacting pair of galaxies, with NGC 5195 (top) having recently passed near the large spiral NGC 5194.
Both NGC 5195 and the Whirlpool are located in the Messier 51 galaxy system, appearing in the constellation Canes Venatici
. The merger of the two galaxies, caused by the gravitational pull of the larger of the two, will likely take billions of years to complete.
