Pinwheel galaxy

The Pinwheel Galaxy is in the constellation of Ursa Major (also known as the Big Dipper). It is about 70 percent larger than our own Milky Way Galaxy, with a diameter of about 170,000 light years, and sits at a distance of 21 million light years from Earth. This means that the light we're seeing in this image left the Pinwheel Galaxy about 21 million years ago - many millions of years before humans ever walked the Earth.

This new Hubble image reveals the gigantic Pinwheel galaxy, one of the best known examples of "grand design spirals", and its supergiant star-forming regions in unprecedented detail. The image is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy ever taken with Hubble.

Giant galaxies weren't assembled in a day. Neither was this Hubble Space Telescope image of the face-on spiral galaxy Messier 101 It is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy that has ever been released from Hubble.

This new Hubble image shows the spiral galaxy Messier 83, otherwise known as the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy. This galaxy is dramatic and mysterious; it has hosted a large number of supernova explosions, and is thought to have a double nucleus lurking at its core. http://spacetelescope.org/news/heic1403/ AND http://infinity-imagined.tumblr.com/post/73545042127/spiral-galaxy-m83

This new Hubble image shows the spiral galaxy Messier otherwise known as the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy.

This spectacular spiral galaxy is known to astronomers as Messier 83. Colloquially, it is also called  the Southern Pinwheel due to its similarity to the more northerly Pinwheel galaxy Messier 101. NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope shows us, in spectacular detail, the infrared structure of what many think of as our own Milky Way galaxys smaller cousin.

The Pinwheel Galaxy Observational evidence indicates that a close gravitational interaction with a neighboring galaxy created waves of high mass and condensed gas which continue to orbit the galaxy center.

Pinwheel Galaxy. The Pinwheel Galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major (the Greater Bear) is a “grand design” spiral, meaning that it has well-defined spiral arms and dust lanes that extend all the way around the body of the galaxy. It was discovered in 1781 by astronomer Pierre Méchain, and included as object number 101 in Charles Messier’s list of celestial objects.

The Pinwheel Galaxy is one of the largest Galaxies yet discovered. At 170,000 light years in diameter it is nearly double the size of the Milky Way. The Pinwheel galaxy has a structure similar to that of the Milky Way being a spiral galaxy. It is believed to have a mass that is the equivalent of over 100 billion solar systems in its main disk and and 3 billion solar systems in its smaller bulge. The estimates on its distance from the Milky Way is between 20 million to 26 million light years.
