Space oddity - huge galaxy 'eats' star system like our own Milky Way
Space oddity - huge galaxy 'eats' star system like our own Milky Way Centaurus A is relatively near to Earth - a mere 12 million light years away - and astronomers used a space telescope to pick out two spiral 'arms' right in the centre of the galaxy.
The lights are most common during the autumn months of September and October and then again in March and April because of the Earth’s tilt in relation to the Sun. #Alaska is easily the best place in the United States to witness the breathtaking light show.
