The Hubble telescope has captured the Meser 90 galaxy, a beautiful spiral galaxy about 60 million light-years from the Milky Way in the Virgo constellation, part of the Virgo Cluster, a galaxy of more than 1,200 galaxies that moves toward Earth.

According to Phys, this image combines infrared, ultraviolet and visible light collected by Field and Planetary Camera 2 on the NASA / ESA space telescope.

When the four images are combined together in a single image, the size of the high-zoom image is reduced until the image is aligned correctly.

This magnificent galaxy is one of the few galaxies that see it moving toward the Milky Way, not far from it. The galaxy’s light reveals this incoming movement, where the wavelength of light appears as it moves toward us.

As the universe expands, all the galaxies that we see in the universe are almost moving away from us, so we see more light towards the red end of the spectrum, known as the red transition, but the Meser 90 is a rare exception.
