NASA detects a galaxy racing away from Earth at 3.5 million miles per hour

Hubble’s astronomers said: “Located approximately 60 million light-years away, NGC 7513 lies within the Sculptor constellation in the southern hemisphere.

“This galaxy is moving at the astounding speed of 1,546 kilometres per second, and it is heading away from us.

“For context, the Earth orbits the Sun at about 30 kilometres per second.

“Though NGC 7153’s apparent movement from the Milky Way might seem strange, it is not that unusual.”
