This misty spiral galaxy is the largest in the Virgo cluster - a collection of over 2,000 galaxies.

In the 1950s, when amateur astronomer Leyland S. When Copeland first fixed his telescope lens on a distant galaxy in the Virgo constellation, he saw a terrifying spiral submerged in dust. 

Copeland - who was a professional poet fond of writing about the universe - gave a name to the spiral "The Lost Galaxy", which has stuck around 70 years later.

Low-poetic scientists know this galaxy as NGC 4535, one of the largest galaxies out of 2,000 in the Virgo cluster located about 50 million light years from Earth

When viewed through NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, which captured the astonishing image above, the mist that lost Copeland's Lost Galaxy disappeared to reveal a vibrant sea of ​​stars no different from the Milky Way Has gone.

Like our home galaxy, The Lost Galaxy is a forbidden spiral galaxy: a vast swirl of stars with a different bar structure at its center. According to NASA, the colors of those stars can tell us a little about the history of the galaxy.

The yellow glow of the galaxy's central bulge pointed to the oldest, coldest retinue stars of the Lost Galaxy, NASA representatives wrote in a statement; Meanwhile, the spiral arms of the Milky Way show bright blue clouds together, where its smallest, smallest stars converge, which ignite the gas and blow dust around them.

Today, The Lost Galaxy is not difficult to find (especially for temporary observatories like Hubble). In fact, its long, elegant arms make it a prime candidate for studying the structure of spiral galaxies. 

NASA released the image above on January 11 as part of a survey of 38 spiral galaxies located within 75 million light years of Earth. You can see some equally stunning images of other spiral galaxies nearby from the survey - known as Physics in High Angular Resolution in the Nearby Galaxy (PHANGS) survey on the project's website.
