This is an image of NGC 6744. It is a spiral galaxy about 30 million light
years away in the constellation Pavo. It is thought to be one of the most
Milky Way-like spiral galaxies in our immediate vicinity, with flocculent
(fluffy) arms and an elongated core. It also has at least one distorted
companion galaxy (NGC 6744A).
