Wallpaper Description:
The VLT Survey Telescope (VST) at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile captured this beautifully detailed image of the galaxy Messier 33, often called the Triangulum Galaxy. This nearby spiral, the second closest large galaxy to our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is packed with bright star clusters, and clouds of gas and dust. This picture is among the most detailed wide-field views of this object ever taken and shows the many glowing red gas clouds in the spiral arms with particular clarity.

" My God, Its Full of Stars! "
Messier-33 can surly be visited by our ancestors in the far future, owing to its "relatively" short distance from us! It's an awesome sight with all those crimson gas clouds! We're lucky to have its aspect ratio tilted flat in our direction for the VST to capture it this way! Thanks Kim! -Cassandra. fav+1
