New image of NGC 4217, a galaxy 67 million light-years from the Milky Way has shown that while most galaxies can appear nice and tidy, some of them come in a multitude of sizes and shapes.
According to reports, the latest image show NGC 4217 has a vast and complex magnetic field that stretches 22,500 light-years into space around it. Researchers hope that these new images of NGC 4217 will help them understand galactic magnetic fields a little better and the knowledge will help them unfold mysteries of distant galaxies.
