Pictured here is the region surrounding NGC 2525. Located nearly 70 million light-years from Earth, this galaxy is part of the constellation of Puppis in the southern hemisphere. Hubble has captured a series of images of NGC2525 as part of one of its major investigations; measuring the expansion rate of the Universe, which can help answer fundamental questions about our Universes very nature. ESA/Hubble has now published a unique time-lapse of this galaxy and its fading supernova. This view was created from images forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
