Amazing barred spiral galaxy video

The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy, meaning it contains a dense collection of stars and planets at its centre and several arms swirling around it. These arms contain more stars and planets, although these are less densely clustered.

The Hubble Space Telescope has taken some photographs of barred spiral galaxy NGC 1073, which is located in the Cetus constellation. This video brings the beauty of Hubble’s photographs to life in an awe-inspiring way.
