Spiral Galaxy NGC 1512: The Inner Rings
Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble Space Telescope

Explanation: Most galaxies don’t have any rings — why does this galaxy have two? To begin, the bright band near NGC 1512‘s center is a nuclear ring, a ring that surrounds the galaxy center and glows brightly with recently formed stars. Most stars and accompanying gas and dust, however, orbit the galactic center in a ring much further out — here seen near the image edge. This ring is called, counter-intuitively, the inner ring. If you look closely, you will see this the inner ring connects ends of a diffuse central bar that runs horizontally across the galaxy. These ring structures are thought to be caused by NGC 1512‘s own asymmetries in a drawn-out process called secular evolution. The gravity of these galaxy asymmetries, including the bar of stars, cause gas and dust to fall from the inner ring to the nuclear ring, enhancing this ring’s rate of star formation. Some spiral galaxies also have a third ring — an outer ring that circles the galaxy even further out.

Watch out for these words ” the end of democracy “.  They are used by the demdemons to replace, ” walls don’t work”, which was replaced by ” white supremacist “, which was replaced by, ” racist “, which was replaced by, ” white priviledge “, which was replaced by, ” justice-equity “, it goes on and on.


The rioters are back on duty.  They follow the Democrats call for violence.

Here is what they need.

The R’s win in New York.


The dem Dung Beatles have been constantly creating problems to divide America since Hilltoad lost.

The History Editor:  Have you ever written an article about a state, LL ?

The Ute Cat:  I know I will sound like a Supreme Court appointee or a Biden appointment to his cabinet, but I don’t remember.  Utah is named after a Native American Tribe.

The Utes seem to have had a better culture than, Los Angles, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, NYC, Baltimore, and a few other lawless cities.

The Mormons or their preferred name The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints ( LDS ), seem to have made the first large scale settlement in Ute Land.

This is a little bit of their religious beliefs.

Orin Hatch a long serving Utah Senator died a few days ago.

News of the Utah Senate race.  At least we know Republican elected  Mitt Romney is a Democrat.

This is the Sun Dance of the Plains Tribes.  It looks a little rough on the nipples.
