Gorgeous picture of The Needle Galaxy

Astronomy Photo of the Day: NGC4565 edge-on. Apparently the galaxy is quite similar to our own, and oriented such that we see its edge rather than the spiral itself.

This picture is absolutely huge though. If you’ve got dial-up, or using a cell phone for internet access, or TCP/ITP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Telepathy Protocol), or TCP/IP over Wood, or something, I’d pass on this one.
