NASA shares Spellbinding images of Fireworks Galaxy

A recent such sight was seen when space research agency NASA shared an image of the volatile Fireworks Galaxy, which is known to have frequent supernovae.

The image was captured using NASA's Hubble Telescope and shared on the official handle of Hubble Telescope on Friday with the hashtag #HubbleFriday.

In the last century alone, the Fireworks Galaxy (or NGC 6946) has experienced 10 observed supernovae. Our Milky Way Galaxy averages just one to two supernova events per century!.

The Fireworks Galaxy was located 25.2 million light-years away from Earth, and was situated along the border of the northern constellations of Cepheus and Cygnus.
