Serpens galaxy slithers through new Hubble photo

As space fans eagerly await the James Webb Space Telescope to come online, the Hubble Space Telescope continues to impress.

One of its latest photos captures the spiral galaxy NGC 5921, which lies just shy of 80 million light-years away from Earth. Like our Milky Way — and potentially half of all the spiral galaxies in the universe —  the galaxy is barred, meaning its center features a long, straight structure of stars, off which the spiraling arms emerge.
