This is the Chariot Wheel galaxy, which is located in the constellation of the Sculptor.

The image shows new details about star formation and the black hole that sits at the center of the galaxy, according to NASA.

The appearance of the galaxy, which resembles a wagon wheel, is thought to be the result of a high-speed collision between a large spiral galaxy and a smaller galaxy that is not visible in the image.
