Caption

Spiral galaxy UGC 2885, NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. UGC 2885 is located in the constellation Perseus about 230 million light-years from Earth. There is a bright central region and spiral arms, which have a blue colour due to the formation of hot, young stars. Also shown are two bright foreground stars. UGC 2885 is known as the Godzilla Galaxy because of it's large size, two and half times wider than the Milky Way and containing ten times as many stars.
