A new image released by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescopes reveals a bright and swirling spider web in space evoked by a spiral galaxy’s starlight and a delicate pattern of dust in space.

The bright and swirling spider web-like galaxy is located about 10 million light-years away but the galaxy from this vantage point, it is directly behind the disk of our own Milky Way.

Researchers said that the intervening dust makes it difficult to see IC 342 in visible light, but Spitzer's sensitive infrared eyes are able to penetrate this dusty veil, Space.com reported.

The blue and white dots over the spirals are stars within our own Milky Way and these stars are very close to us.
