Photo of a Galaxy on it's Edge....!

What the heck it that...!?
This amazing photo was recently taken by the Hubble Telescope and it is of an entire galaxy spanning 35,000 light years across.... the view that the picture was taken is almost perfectly on its edge.
The edgewise shot of NGC 4452, a disk galaxy in the nearby Virgo Cluster, was shot recently by the Hubble Space Telescope. All those dots in the background? Those are galaxies too.
