This jewel-bright image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows NGC 1385, a spiral galaxy 68 million light-years from Earth, which lies in the constellation Fornax.

NGC 1385's home—the Fornax constellation—is not named after an animal or an ancient god, as are many of the other constellations. Fornax is simply the Latin word for a furnace.

The constellation was named Fornax by Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille, a French astronomer born in 1713.

Lacaille named 14 of the 88 constellations we still recognize today.

This video is a zoom into the Hubble Space Telescope infrared Ultra Deep Field, first taken in 2009.

It is a very small patch of sky in the southern constellation Fornax.
