N E W ~ S P I R A L ~ G A L A X Y !



NGC6872 IS MILLIONS OF LIGHT YEARS AWAY
AND BIG ENOUGH TO CONTAIN 5 MILKY WAYS !

IT WAS OBSERVED BY NASA USING THE GALEX
SATELLITE WHICH WAS EXPLORING STAR FORMING
AREAS OF THE UNIVERSE.

IT IS THE LARGEST GALAXY DISCOVERED TO DATE
AND IT'S SIZE IS UNBELIEVABLE.  IT MAKES PLANET
EARTH (AND ITS 7 BILLION HUMAN BEINGS) SEEM
INSIGNIFICANT.  HOWEVER WE DO HAVE  A HIGHER
INTELLIGENCE TO FIND IT AND CLASSIFY IT.

IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER BEINGS OUT THERE WITH
SIMILAR INTELLIGENCE TO OURSELVES ~ THIS LATEST
DISCOVERY (AND ITS EXPLORATION & CLASSIFICATION)
IS ANOTHER PROOF THAT WE ARE MORE THAN READY
TO MEET AND DISCOURSE WITH THEM. IT MAKES US
ALL WALK A LITTLE TALLER !

I'm just interested, not an Astronomer but I like to share,
Please add a comment. thanks for reading ALEXIA XX.
