The Hubble Telescope looks deep into the needle’s eye in this photo of a dwarf spiral galaxy

A new image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a deep view of the eye of a galactic needle.

The spiral galaxy is nicknamed “the eye of the needle”, although it is more officially known as NGC 247 and Caldwell 62. NASA said on May 10 that the nickname is appropriate given that this galaxy is a dwarf spiral, making it a relatively small group of stars compared to our own Milky Way.
