New Hubble Video Added to Star Viewer

NGC 1132
Since its launch last month the Star Viewer Map has quickly become the most popular of our maps. One of the main reasons of this is of course the wonderful imagery supplied by the Hubble Telescope and the wonderful videos from the European Space Agency.

We have today added another Hubblecast video to the map. The latest video is on galaxy NGC 1132. Galaxy NGC 1132 is most likely a "cosmic fossil" the aftermath of an enormous multi-galactic pile-up, where the carnage of collision after collision has built up a brilliant but fuzzy giant elliptical galaxy far outshining typical galaxies.
