Caption: Amateur astronomy. Composite image of an amateur astronomer silhouetted against a distant galaxy. Only a few galaxies are visible to the naked eye, though more can be seen using a basic telescope. This spiral galaxy, NGC 3370, was seen with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope (HST), which orbits above the Earth. NGC 3370, which is in the constellation Leo, is 98 million light years from Earth. In the background are other, even more distant, galaxies.
