“Hubble” showed the star that eclipsed the brightness of the whole galaxy

"Хаббл" показал звезду, которая затмила яркостью целую галактику“Hubble” has made the very bright stars.

Scientists using the Hubble space telescope got the bright galaxy NGC 7250, which is experiencing a burst of star formation, and which was recorded supernova explosion.

However, as reported on the website of the telescope, the galaxy outshines the light of the star TYC 3203-450-1.

A similar effect is caused by the fact that the star TYC 3203-450-1, which is located in the constellation of the Lizard, is much closer to the telescope than the galaxy. This leads to the fact that an ordinary star outshines a galaxy of billions of stars.

The star is a billion times closer than NGC 7250, which is located at a distance of 45 million light years from Earth. If the galaxy and the star was located at the same distance, a star would be barely visible in the picture.
