Hubble take pictures of rare star

The US-European Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has a detailed BIK cast an unusual spiral-shaped galaxy that what looks like a jellyfish, where the Hubble Center in Garching (near Munich) published.
Galaxy NGC 4921
It is a picture of galaxy NGC 4921 in the Coma Galaxy Cluster in the constellation Coma Berenice's, while the background is rich in many distant galaxies in all kinds of shapes, colors and sizes. Some of the light from the early years of the cosmos.
Coma Galaxy Cluster
The Coma Galaxy Cluster, also known as Abell 1656, is at about 320 million light years from us and has more than 1,000 galaxies and is a collection of nearest galaxies in the nearby universe. The brightest of them, such as NGC 4921, are already at the end of the nineteenth century discovered. Galaxies in rich clusters undergo many interactions and melting occurs which tends to gastric spirals with little active star formation in elliptical systems change. Hence, in the Coma Cluster much more elliptical than spiral galaxies can be found in quieter areas, says the Hubble Center.
Rare spiral-shaped system
NGC 4921 is one of the rare spiral systems in the Coma and an unusual one. It is an example of a "anemically spiral" where the normal intense star formation, which provides the familiar bright arms of the system, much less intense. The result is a delicate whirl of dust in a ring around the galaxy, accompanied by some young blue stars that the sharp eye of the Hubble are not missed.
