M51 ~ Follow the handle of the Big Dipper away from the dipper's bowl until you get to the handle's last bright star. Then, just slide your telescope a little southwest and you might find this stunning pair of interacting galaxies. NGC 5194 spiral arms and dust lanes clearly sweep in front of its companion galaxy (below), NGC 5195. The pair are about 31 million light-yrs away and officially lie within the small constellation Canes Venatici. (NASA-APOD)

Big Brother to the Milky Way. This ultraviolet view highlights the vast extent of the fluffy spiral arms, and demonstrates that star formation can occur in the outer regions of galaxies.

NGC 3627: Revealing The BlackHoles    The spiral galaxy NGC 3627, located about 30 million light years from Earth as seen by four NASA telescopes; inset shows the central region, which contains a bright X-ray source that is likely powered by material falling onto a supermassive black hole.

NGC 7714 es una galaxia espiral en la constelación de Piscis. Fue descubierto por John Herschel el 18 de septiembre 183

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a by a passing galaxy, not seen in this Hubble Space Telescope photo. That's because the near-collision between the galaxies ha

NGC 4725 is a member of the Coma-Sculptor galaxy cluster and lies 12.6 Mpc away from Earth (Gibson et al. 2009, ApJ, 512, 48). This galactic gem is believed to be tidally interacting with the neighbour galaxy NGC 4747 (outside the pictured field), as a neutral hydrogen plume pointing towards NGC 4725 suggests. In the optical,NGC 4725 is dominated by a single spiral arm that seems to originate from an inner ring rich in newborn stars and conspicuous HII regions (in red in the image).

NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole.
