When viewing galaxies along the plane of the spiral disk, we are treated to a unique sight. The interstellar dust within the galaxy is backlit by the starlight glow within. This is the same way we see our home galaxy, the Milky Way, when it’s stretching overhead.
In the case of NGC891 we are 30 million light years the distant. The full galaxy comes into view; a diffuse halo crossed with a complex dark dust lane … the fuel for a new generation of stars. There aren’t many “close” galaxies that are oriented this way, but the select few are truly gems of the night sky.
