A Space Starburst

Welcome to one of the most active galaxies in our cosmic neighborhood: NGC 1569. This starburst galaxy creates stars at a rate 100 times faster than in our own galaxy, the Milky Way – and it’s been doing so for the past 100 million years.

NGC 1569 is about 11 million light-years away in the constellation Camelopardalis. Find out more about this sparkling galaxy here.

For the past few weeks, our Hubble Space Telescope explored #GalaxiesGalore! You can find more galaxy content and spectacular new images on Hubble’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
