Bright blue bursts of light seem appropriate to decorate this particular galaxy, IC 5052, located in the constellation Pavo, that is, the Peacock. The Hubble Space Telescope took this image to probe into the barred spiral galaxy, which difficult to study because it's facing us edge-on. The European Space Agency describes the image:
Burst of pale blue light are visible across the galaxy's length, partially blocked out by weaving lanes of darker gas and dust. These are pockets of extremely hot newborn stars. The bars present in spirals like IC 5052 are thought to help these formation processes by effectively funneling material from the swirling arms inwards towards these hot stellar nurseries.
