The galaxy NGC 3274 is located over 20 million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Leo (The Lion). The image has been gathered in five different filters, bringing together ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light in order to provide a more accurate representation of the spiral galaxy. NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) a sophisticated instrument has two channels—one for ultraviolet and visible light (UVIS) and the other for near infrared.  Galaxy PGC 213714 is also located on the top right of the image
