There are 100 billion galaxies in the universe. There are some bizarre galaxies in the universe. They are bizarre because of their colours, shapes and size are different from the rest of the galaxies. This article will basically explain more about these galaxies and in what way they are different from other galaxies.
Some of the bizarre galaxies are as follows:
The first one among the list is ‘Centaurus A’. It is bizarre because unlike other galaxies it is not spiral or elliptical in shape. There are some theories which say that this galaxy absorbed another galaxy which was spiral in nature.
Second on the list is ‘Hoag’s Object’. It is a galaxy with a cluster of stars which are of yellow in colour at the centre. Then there are another set of stars which are surrounding the cluster of yellow stars but there is a big distance between both the two set of stars.

Then comes the ‘Sombrero Galaxy’. Like the galaxy ‘Hoag’s Object’, it also has a cluster of stars at the centre but the shape is different. There is a big ring surrounding the cluster of stars.
It is one such galaxy which has a bright star at the centre. It is surrounded by other small stars which are shining but they are not much brighter as compared to the star at the centre. Then there are also stars which just looks like the twinkling stars which we can see from our planet in the night.
The Porpoise Galaxy:
It is a galaxy which looks a Penguin overlooking a small egg. It is the mix of several stars and dust particles. Some scientist claims that the Porpoise Galaxy is actually a set of two galaxies. The Penguin part being the one and the egg part being the other.
The Black Eye Galaxy:
As the name suggests, it is a galaxy which looks like an eye but of red colour. Red colour indicates the presence of Hydrogen and formation of stars. Like other stars, it is also surrounded by a ring of dust particles which keeps rotating around the red colour eye shaped cluster of stars.
Our universe is really big and is very fascinating. It will take millions of years to know each and every galaxy of the universe. Like the galaxies mentioned above, there will be many other such bizarre galaxies in the universe. To name a few we have – Sunflower galaxy, MACS JO717, Messier 74, Baby boom galaxy etc. All have their own unique characteristics.
Scientists are striving hard to get know about different galaxies in the universe. There is so much to know about our own galaxy. As per one theory, there is a new star formed in every 36 days in our galaxy.
According to the big bang theory, the universe was created because of one massive explosion. It got expanded from a hot state and is still continuing to expand. So we will be having few more such bizarre galaxies which will be created in future.
