An elliptical galaxy


Elliptical galaxies bear the rounded shape of an ellipse, though really speaking, they have almost no discernible structure. They are simply a gathering of stars in a massive blob that's roughly spherical in shape.

In an elliptical galaxy, the stars orbit around the center of mass in an egg-shaped central bulge.
