Hubble has released the colours of NGC 4535 in a new image. Taking to Twitter, ESA posted the image, alongside the caption, "This NASA/ESA @HUBBLE_space Telescope image shows barred spiral galaxy NGC 4535: its bright blue-ish spiral arms indicate a greater number of younger hotter stars, the yellower central bulge suggests that this area is home to older and cooler stars." Located in the constellation of Virgo, the galaxy is around 50-million light-years away from Earth.
