M66 galaxy: 100,000 light-years across & 35 million light-years away.


Hubble, the space telescope, has snapped a spectacular view of M66, a galaxy about 35 million light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Leo.
Together with M65 and NGC 3628, M66 is one-third of the Leo Triplet, a trio of interacting spiral galaxies. M66 is a galaxy with unusual asymmetric spiral arms, most likely caused by the gravitational pull of the other two members of the trio.
M66 is the largest of the Leo Triplet, at about 100,000 light-years across!
