Hubble Detects Galactic X-File

This photo from the Hubble Space Telescope reveals a strange, faint “X” shape extending from the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 4710. NGC 4710 is located in the Virgo Cluster of galaxies. It’s located 60 million light-years away in a lesser-known northern constellation which bears the strange name, Coma Berenices, translated as the “Hair of Queen Berenice.”
