Hubble spots a peculiar compact blue dwarf galaxy

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured an impressive image of the irregular galaxy NGC 5253.  NGC 5253 is one of the nearest of the known Blue Compact Dwarf (BCD) galaxies, and is located at a distance of about 12 million light-years from Earth in the southern constellation of Centaurus.  The most characteristic signature of these galaxies is that they harbor very active star-formation regions. <img src="hxxp: feeds. feedburner. com/~r/sciencedaily/space_time/astronomy/~4/178LXRDf7LU" height="1" width="1"/>
