NGC 1309 -- A spiral galaxy ~120 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. It is about 75,000 light-years across; about 3/4s the width of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Bright blue areas of star formation can be seen in the spiral arms, while the yellowish central nucleus contains older-population stars.

Galaxy To Myself

The Pinwheel Galaxy, a face-on spiral galaxy distanced 21 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major, first discovered by Pierre Méchain on March 1781

Foto: Black hole. Supernova NGC 3783 is a barred spiral galaxy a located about 30 million light years away in the constellation Centaurus. It is inclined by an angle of 23° to the line of sight from the Earth along a position angle of about 163°. The morphological classification of SBa indicates a bar structure across the center (B) and tightly-wound spiral arms (a). Although not shown by this classification, observers note the galaxy has a luminous inner ring surrounding the bar structur...

Mixer of Stars | Bursts of pink and red, dark lanes of mottled cosmic dust, and a bright scattering of stars — this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows part of a messy barred spiral galaxy known as NGC 428. It lies approximately 48 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster). by grace

La Espiral de Fibonacci: ¿De verdad todo esto te parece casualidad? (FOTOS)

A new CU-Boulder study indicates spiral galaxies like our Milky Way, and the Galaxy shown here, are larger and more massive than previously believed.

Spiral Galaxy Messier 81 The magnificent spiral arms of the nearby galaxy Messier 81 are highlighted in this NASA Spitzer Space Telescope image. Located in the northern constellation of Ursa Major (which also includes the Big Dipper), this galaxy is easily visible through binoculars or a small telescope. M81 is located at a distance of 12 million light-years.

is located at a distance of 12 million light-years.

The Andromeda Galaxy is 2 million light years away from us so what we see now is how it appeared 2 million years ago. It will collide with our Milky Way in 2 billions years from now. The two galaxies are heading towards each other at a rate of 430 km/hr. A billion years from now Andromeda will loom as a spectacular site, eventually swelling to fill half of the night sky.

#LagoonNebula

The Lagoon Nebula of Charles Messier’s “not a comet” list, the Lagoon Nebula is a cloud of ionized hydrogen estimated to be light years from earth. It can be seen with the naked eye as a gray/green patch in the constellation of Sagittarius.

Space. . The Rings Queen's..  M 0644-741 (sometimes called The Southern Ellipse) is a ring galaxy, approximately 300 million light-years away in the direction of the southern constellation Volans. It is receding from us at about 6600 km/sec. The yellowish off-center nucleus was once the center of a normal spiral galaxy.
