PHANGS-ALMA Survey: NGC5248
Shown here as an ALMA (orange) composite with Hubble Space Telescope (red) data, NGC5248 is an example of a galaxy featuring asymmetric morphology, and is one of nearly 100 galaxies catalogued by the PHANGS project during a recent census of the nearby Universe. The study revealed that stellar nurseries in galaxies are extraordinarily diverse in their appearances and behaviors, and that how they look and act depends on their location.
