Caption

NGC 4921 spiral galaxy. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 4921, which lies around 310 million light-years from Earth, in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4921 has been informally dubbed anaemic because of its low rate of star formation and low surface brightness. Visible in the above image are (from centre): a bright nucleus, a bright central bar, a prominent ring of dark dust, blue clusters of recently formed stars, several smaller companion galaxies, unrelated galaxies in the far distant universe, and unrelated stars in our Milky Way Galaxy.
