The Sombrero Galaxy in Infrared.
Credit: R. Kennicutt (Steward Obs.) et al., SSC, JPL, Caltech, NASA. This floating ring is the size of a galaxy. In fact, it is part of the Sombrero Galaxy, one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster of Galaxies. The dark band of dust that obscures the mid-section of the Sombrero Galaxy in optical light actually glows brightly in infrared light. The digitally sharpened image shows the infrared glow, recently recorded by the orbiting Spitzer Space Telescope, superposed in false-colour on an existing image taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in optical light. The Sombrero Galaxy, also known as M104, spans about 50,000 light-years across and lies 28 million light-years away in the direction of the constellation Virgo.
