when ur an Adult in Training™ and need to ask a Certified Adult™ a question BUT UR MOM ISNT ANSWERING THE PHOnE  

Just wanted to post a quick message for anyone keeping an eye out for a loooong overdue C&R fic from me *cough*goddamn hero part 3*cough* – I am working on it I promise! 

Life kinda got in the way a bit (nothing serious but anxiety filled and distracting) and I’m struggling to get back to writing. That said I know what’s most likely going to happen I just need to assemble the right words, hopefully sometime soon. So sorry for the delay 😦

Hubble spies a spiral snowflake

Together with irregular galaxies, spiral galaxies make up approximately 60 percent of the galaxies in the local universe. However, despite their prevalence, each spiral galaxy is unique – like snowflakes, no two are alike. This is demonstrated by the striking face-on spiral galaxy NGC 6814, whose luminous nucleus and spectacular sweeping arms, rippled with an intricate pattern of dark dust, are captured in this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.

NGC 6814 has an extremely bright nucleus, a telltale sign that the galaxy is a Seyfert galaxy. These galaxies have very active centers that can emit strong bursts of radiation. The luminous heart of NGC 6814 is a highly variable source of X-ray radiation, causing scientists to suspect that it hosts a supermassive black hole with a mass about 18 million times that of the sun.

As NGC 6814 is a very active galaxy, many regions of ionized gas are studded along its spiral arms. In these large clouds of gas, a burst of star formation has recently taken place, forging the brilliant blue stars that are visible scattered throughout the galaxy.
