I like astronomy, archaeology, photography, music and drinking a lot of tea.
I hate politics.
Something that annoys me: that I shall not respect the permanence, and to take me by what I'm not.
The best sign: VIRGO.
The worst: the health.
The best: adapt and know how to get ahead.

HUBBLE FINDS A LENTICULAR GALAXY STANDING OUT IN THE CROWD HUBBLE IMAGE OF OUTSKIRTS AND CORE OF PGC 83677 Credits: NASA/ESA/Hubble; acknowledgements: Judy Schmidt (Geckzilla)
A lone source shines out brightly from the dark expanse of deep space, glowing softly against a picturesque backdrop of distant stars and colorful galaxies.
Captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), this scene shows PGC 83677, a lenticular galaxy — a galaxy type that sits between the more familiar elliptical and spiral varieties.
It reveals both the relatively calm outskirts and intriguing core of PGC 83677. Here, studies have uncovered signs of a monstrous black hole that is spewing out high-energy X-rays and ultraviolet light.
