Description

NGC 3628, also known as the Hamburger Galaxy, is an unbarred spiral galaxy about 35 million light-years away in the constellation Leo. It has dark dust lanes surrounded by a disk of illuminated dust, giving the appearance of a hamburger. We haven't changed much since ancient times
when people saw animal shapes in constellations. Now I am hungry LOL.
