Scientists were able to take a close-up photo of the galaxy NGC 4603. The object is located at a distance of more than one hundred million light-years from the constellation Centaur.
The telescope footage was posted on the Hubble observatory portal.
The picture shows the lines of blue young stars. They create a conditional envelope of this galaxy. The frames also feature red-brown halftones from thick clouds of cosmic dust.
Previously, this galaxy and processes in it were already monitored by Hubble. Scientists have studied a special class of stars known as Cepheid variables.

These objects change their luminosity depending on a certain period. This made it possible for astronomers to learn how to give precise coordinates of how far they are from the Earth.
Measuring distances from Cepheid variables is the key to measuring long-range distances in the universe.
