Similar in size to the large spiral galaxies in our neighbourhood, IC 342 is only 10 million light years away in the constellation of the Giraffe. IC 342 is a hidden sprawling island universe, observable only through the veil of stars, gas and dust clouds of our Milky Way galaxy. Although the light of IC 342 is dimmed and tinted red by the interposing cosmic clouds, this sharp image shows the dark dust of the galaxy, its young star clusters and its pink and bright star-forming regions along the spiral arm that snakes away from the centre of the galaxy. It is possible that IC 342 has experienced a recent peak of star-forming activity. It is close enough to have gravitationally influenced the evolution of the Milky Way, and the local group of galaxies.
