UPDATE BELOW : This is one of the Largest Digital Image's taken with the HUBBLE Space Telescope. This Huge Spiral structure is about 3,300 Light Years across and is located about 69,000,000 million Light Years from Earth. ( remember the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second - so a Light Year is a huge distance ) My contribution to this Image was some Digital Enhancements and Sizing for the FAA formats.
