The galaxy UGCA 193 consists of many stars, which, having accumulated at the bottom, create a visual effect of “waterfall”.

The Hubble Space Telescope took an unusual image of the galaxy UGCA 193, which looks like a waterfall of stars. The image appeared on the observatory’s official website on Monday, November 2.

According to astronomers from NASA and the European Space Agency, the galaxy captured is located in the constellation Sextant. It consists of many stars, which, having accumulated at the bottom, create a glowing blue haze and a visual effect of the “waterfall”.

The blue colour of UGCA 193 indicates the stars that we see are hot — some with temperatures exceeding 6 times that of our Sun. We know that cooler stars appear to our eyes more red, and hotter stars appear more blue.

They also explained that the mass, temperature of the star and the color of its surface are connected. Therefore, when heavier stars “burn” at higher temperatures, there is a blue glow on their surface.

Hubble was previously reported to have photographed the galaxy NGC 1365, which is giving birth to hundreds of new stars. It is located about 60 million light-years from Earth in the Fornax(The Furnace) constellation.
