This new picture of the week, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows the dwarf galaxy NGC 4625, located about 30 million light-years away in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs). The image, acquired with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), reveals the single major spiral arm of the galaxy, which gives it an asymmetric appearance. But why is there only one such spiral arm, when spiral galaxies normally have at least two?

In the middle of the twentieth century, an unusual star was spotted in the constellation of Canes Venatici.
The neighboring constellations are Boötes, Coma Berenices, and Ursa Major. Canes Venatici has only one star brighter than magnitude 3.00 and two stars located within 10 parsecs (32.6 light years) of Earth.
The brightest star in Canes Venatici is Cor Caroli, Alpha Canum Venaticorum
