Know about the ‘Caldwell 5’ galaxy, why does it appear faint even though it is bright?

The Hubble Space Telescope was sent into space in the year 1990. It has enriched astronomy since its deployment. Positioned in the universe and away from the troubles of cloudy, pollution, it has captured some astonishing pictures of stars. The planets of our solar system have also been shown from a different point of view. A recent image from this telescope reveals another fascinating spiral galaxy named Caldwell 5. This galaxy is about 11 million light years away from our Earth. The Galaxy’s star arms are well visible in the image, which are spread across the center, seen in yellow.

A star nursery is present in the center of this galaxy. It has given birth to thousands of stars over millions of years.
