Scientists using the Hubble space telescope got a picture where you can see the galaxy, which will soon have to “hide” behind the star HD 107146.
The picture was published on the official website of the telescope.
As the researchers note, this event is called a transit. The position of the star in the picture marked by the green circle. The orange circle is the circumstellar disk, which consists of debris that now orbit the sun.
According to scientists, the HD 107146 is analogous to the young Sun and its study can reveal some aspects of the evolution of the Solar system. The circumstellar disk may be analogous to the Main asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt.
