The NGC 1365 galaxy, also known as the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy, is seen in an image that combines observations performed through three different filters with the 1.5-metre Danish telescope at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, in this handout photo distributed on September 22, 2010. The ESO's website describes the galaxy, at 60 million light-years from Earth, 200,000 light-years across and about twice the size of the Milky Way, as one of the largest known to astronomers.

    so we are seeing how the galaxy looked 60 million years ago!

    (60 million light years away==light takes 60 million years to get here, i.e. the image that we are seeing now is actually 60 million years old)

    wonder how it looks today
