Barred spiral galaxy

This is UGC 678, a barred spiral galaxy located two hundred and sixty million light-years away, captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

It is located in the Constellation Pisces and is oriented so that the face is fully visible in our line of sight.
Therefore, the spiral arms in that galaxy can be observed beautifully.

Behind it we can see another galaxy with the edge facing us. This galaxy appears smaller because it is further away than the one originally discussed.

A wand-like structure extends from the center of a spiral galaxy. The orbits of the stars at the center of the galaxy become unstable and begin to spread. When many such elongated orbits are joined together, a wand is formed. As more and more stars are attracted to the high gravity at the center of the galaxy, this wand increases in length and size.

The scepter of the galaxy above is very subtle. But if you look very carefully, this can be seen as an elongated bright structure in the center of the galaxy in a right-up and left-down direction (1 O’clock to 7 O’clock positions).
It also has a more prominent wand in our Milky Way. (Since we can’t photograph our galaxy in its entirety from inside our galaxy, we can only speculate at this time.)
