Description

The Black Eye Galaxy (additionally referred to as Evil Eye Galaxy and designated Messier 64, M64, or NGC 4826) is a comparatively remoted spiral galaxy positioned 17 million gentle years away within the northern constellation of Coma Berenices. A darkish band of absorbing mud in entrance of the galaxy’s vivid nucleus gave rise to its nicknames of the “Black Eye” or “Evil Eye” galaxy. M64 is well-known amongst newbie astronomers due to its look in small telescopes. The galaxy lies about 17 million light-years distant within the northern constellation Coma Berenices. The darkish clouds alongside the near-side of M64’s central area that give the galaxy its black-eye look are monumental obscuring mud clouds related to star formation.
