This is an HST image of the host galaxy of GRB990705. The arrow and the green circle indicate the position of this GRB inside the host. As one can see, GRB990705 appears to be associated with one of the arms of this elegant spiral galaxy prospectically located on the background of the Large Magellanic Cloud outskirts.
