Topsy Turvy Galaxy (NGC 1313) : Barred Spiral Galaxy - This very active galaxy located some 20 million light-years away in the constellation Reticulum has many vast regions of star formation. Supershells or regions of gas expanding and etched by successive bursts of star formation are quite evident. The green nebulosities are regions emitting in the ionized oxygen lines and may harbor clusters of very hot stars - Image : © ESO

The center of the Triangulum galaxy is filled with older, yellow, long-burning stars. Younger, blue, fast-burning stars populate the spiral arms, creating waves of star formation that ripple around the central disk. Astronomers see the same processes and life cycles of stars in these nearby galaxies that they see in our own.

This is called the Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tree Spider (Poecilotheria metallica) and even its name is all fancy. They're insanely rare, too, only being found in a single location which is severely fragmented. The extent of occurrence is less than 100 km2. Habitat: Southeastern India and Sri Lanka Status: Critically Endangered
