M104 The Sombrero Galaxy

The dark lane you see through the center of this galaxy is dark matter. Our own galaxy has similar dark matter spread throughout the disk. Look up on a clear summer night at the Milky Way (if you can get away from the city light). You will see a similar dark rift through our very own glactic disk. This galaxy is a delight to observe. Unlike many photographed celestial objects, this one shows best in an amateur telescope. ?
