The universe is very mysterious, and most of the times, it breaks the rules of physics, and sometimes it follows the same. We’ve discovered a lot of strange objects in the universe that tricks our mind. Hoag’s Object is one such mind-boggling, Object, which is nothing but the Galaxy inside the Galaxy. We’ve never seen anything like this before, which makes everyone stare in awe at the results. Hoag’s Object not a discovery at all, as it was discovered back in 1950 by the astronomer named Hoag.
The Hoag’s Object is the perfectly ring-shaped Galaxy which is nearly 600-million light years away from the earth. It is spread over 100,000 light-years and is in a perfect ring shape. What is weird is that the another small galaxy placed inside the ring. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope recently took the cleared and sharper picture of the Hoag’s Object, which was later processed artificially by Geophysicist Benoit Blanco. In the graphically processed image, we can spot the perfectly ring-shaped Galaxy with billions of blue stars around in the ring. Inside the blue star circle, there are a bunch of red stars, which consists of another galaxy.
In the entire universe which is already explored by the astronomers, the ring-shaped galaxies are only a few, in numbers, they are less than 0.1 per cent. That’s why most of the astronomers are confused with the weird Hoag’s Object. With the cleared picture of the same from Hubble Space Telescope, it is really easy to get confused. Most of the astronomers are considering it as the mere optical illusion, as there might be some issues with the depth of the image. The astronomers are claiming that the Galaxy that we can spot is way too behind the ring-shaped Galaxy, and it is just the optical illusion due to the space in the circle.
