Video: Hubble imagery shows splendour of Spiral Galaxy ESO 137-001

This video shows spiral galaxy ESO 137-001, which is undergoing a phenomenon known as ram pressure stripping. The galaxy is moving through the center of a star cluster full of superheated gas, which causes it to shed gas from its own structure. The sequence begins with a view of the sky near the constellation of Triangulum Australe. It then zooms through observations from the Digitized Sky Survey 2, and ends with a view of the galaxy from Hubble. Credit: Youtube/NASA, ESA, Digitized Sky Survey 2
