This image captured by NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), shows of one of our closest neighboring galaxies, Messier 33. It’s also called the Triangulum galaxy after the constellation it’s found in.

The bright yellow-orange ‘blobs’ scattered throughout M33 are areas where stars are forming at an especially intense rate. The largest one in the spiral arm to the upper left has its own name, NGC 604.
