The dwarf galaxy UGC 5189A, site of the supernova SN 2010jl

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the irregular dwarf galaxy UGC 5189A. This star-forming galaxy was the site of the bright supernova SN 2010jl. VLT observations of this supernova have shown that these cosmic dust factories make their grains in a two-stage process, starting soon after the explosion, but continuing long afterwards.
