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 NASA image obtained May of the Pinwheel Galaxy, or combines data in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet and X-rays from four of NASA's space telescopes. The Pinwheel galaxy in the constellation of Ursa Major (also known as.

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.

The Pinwheel Galaxy (also known as Messier or NGC is a face-on spiral galaxy distanced 21 million light-years (six megaparsecs) away in the constellation Ursa Major

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.

Despite being less famous than its galactic cousins, elliptical or spiral galaxies, dwarf irregular galaxies - as captured in this image by the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA / ESA - is a very common type of galaxy in the universe. Known as UGC 4459, this dwarf galaxy lies about 11 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major, a constellation that is also home to the Pinwheel Galaxy (M101), the Owl Nebula (M97) , Messier 81, Messier 82 and other galaxies belonging to M81 group.
