Caption

Artist's impression of the Sombrero Galaxy, seen at the resolution at which it would appear through the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The Sombrero Galaxy (M104, NGC 4594) is a spiral galaxy (type Sa/Sb) in the constellation of Virgo. Here, the galaxy is seen almost edge-on and the dark stripe running across it is due to dust lying within the plane of the galaxy. The HST is an orbiting observatory with a 2.4-metre aperture used for producing images at visible and ultraviolet wavelengths.
