"Hubble" has made a "vortex" picture in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Scientists are using the telescope "Hubble" got the picture "whirlwind" of glowing dust and gas, which is located in our neighboring galaxy, the Large Magellanic Cloud. As reported at the telescope site, in the center of the image is a stellar nursery called the N159. The N159 contains a lot of hot young stars that emit intense ultraviolet radiation. This causes light emission of hydrogen, which is the surrounding space. At the center of this cosmic cloud is a nebula that resembles the outline of a butterfly. N159 is located at a distance of 160 light years from Earth. The property is located just south of the Tarantula Nebula, another star of the massive complex in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
