Markarian's Chain to Messier 64
Image Credit & Copyright: Rogelio Bernal Andreo (Deep Sky Colors)
Explanation: Top to bottom, this colorful and broad telescopic mosaic links Markarian's Chain of galaxies across the core of the Virgo Cluster to dusty spiral galaxy Messier 64. Galaxies are scattered through the field of view that spans some 20 full moons across a gorgeous night sky. The cosmic frame is also filled with foreground stars from constellations Virgo and the well-groomed Coma Berenices, and faint, dusty nebulae drifting above the plane of the Milky Way. Look carefully for Markarian's eyes. The famous pair of interacting galaxies is near the top, not far from M87, the Virgo cluster's giant elliptical galaxy. At the bottom, you can stare down Messier 64, also known as the Black Eye Galaxy. The Virgo Cluster is the closest large galaxy cluster to our own local galaxy group. Virgo Cluster galaxies are about 50 million light-years distant, but M64 lies a mere 17 million light-years away.

解释:上到下,这个多彩的和广泛的镶嵌伸缩链接马卡里安星系链的星系在室女座星系团核心,以灰尘的螺旋星系梅西耶64。星系散布在一个横跨约20个满月横跨美丽夜空的视野中。宇宙框架中也充满了来自处女座的前景恒星和精心梳理的昏迷Berenices,以及在银河系平面上方漂浮的微弱的尘埃星云。仔细看看Markarian的眼睛。这对著名的相互作用星系靠近顶部,离M87不远,是处女座星团的巨大椭圆星系。在底部,你可以盯着梅西Messier 64,也被称为黑眼圈星系。处女座星团是我们当地星系的最接近的大星系团。处女座星系团距离.光年远,但M64的距离只有1700万光年远。
