On the edge of a galaxy.⁣ ⁣ Believe it or not, this long luminous streak is a spiral galaxy like our Milky Way. Because observatories like @NASAHubble have seen spiral galaxies at every kind of orientation, astronomers can tell when we’ve caught one from the side. We see this galaxy, named NGC 3432, oriented directly edge-on to us from our vantage point on Earth. ⁣ ⁣ Click the link above for more info ⬆️⁣ ⁣ Image credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, A. Filippenko, R.
