What actually happens is, according to NASA, this “strange behavior”. It originated in the merger between M64As this region is also known, with another satellite galaxy for over a billion years.

A recent investigation detailed by the scientists of Cornell University found out that closes an outer disk of gasWhich is similar to the Small Magellanic Cloud.

Through the implementation of follow-up studies, there is now another hypothesis, which The distant diffuse satellite coma indicates a “flyby” interaction with P.

“These results suggest that M64 is in the final stages of a minor merger with a gas-rich satellite similar to the SMC, which generated M64’s enhanced counter-rotation gas, and which is responsible for the formation of its dusty interior.” stellar disk “, the researchers concluded.

To this has been added the contribution of the Hubble Space Telescope The core is seen with recent hot blue stars as well as pink clouds of hydrogen gas.

black eye galaxy It was discovered in 1779 by English astronomer Edward Pigot in the constellation Coma Berenices and, according to NASA, It’s Best Celebrated, Well, In May With a medium sized telescope.
