Face-on galaxies reveal their beauty to us in their full glory. Such an apparent view gives us the best look at their core, their arms, their bright blue star clusters, their HII regions, and the broad extent of their dust lanes. These galaxies all have an aspect ratio of 0.9 or above, which means that they are within 25 degrees of being fully face-on.
