NGC 1309 is a galaxy about 100 million light years away and can be found near the constellation Eridanus. The picture was taken by the Hubble Telescope. While the face on view is spectacular, the really mind blowing things are all the other galaxies that you can see behind this one. Just can't stay away from these gems. Again this is from the Astronomy Picture of the Day site.
Just another one of those mind blowingly spectacular objects in our universe.
