English: From original NASA press release:
Amid a backdrop of far-off galaxies, the majestic dusty spiral NGC 3370 looms in the foreground in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image. Recent observations taken with the Advanced Camera for Surveys show intricate spiral arm structure spotted with hot areas of new star formation. But this galaxy is more than just a pretty face. Nearly 10 years earlier, NGC 3370, located in the constellation Leo, hosted a bright exploding star.

The image was released on September 3, 2003 from 25 hours of exposures taken during April and May of 2003. It is labeled by NASA as "STScI-2003-24". Image Credit goes to NASA, The Hubble Heritage Team and A. Riess (STScI) This image is roughly 3.4 arcminutes (95,000 light-years or 29,000 parsecs) wide. Instrument: ACS/WFC (Advanced Camera for surveys/Wide Field camera) Filters: F435W(B), F555W(V), F814W(I)

This image is sharp enough to identify individual Cepheid variable stars in the galaxy.
