Integrated flux nebula around M81

Images reveal a bright nucleus and two well resolved spiral arms studded with bright regions of star formation. These images show that has a significant amount of cold dust associated with the spiral arms.

(Bode’s & Messier 82 (Cigar are respectively spiral & starburst galaxies about 12 mly away in Ursa Major.This couple is seen through the faint glow of an Integrated Flux Nebulae (or IFN).

Galaxy NGC 2442, aka the Meat-hook Galaxy, is some 50 mly away in the Volans constellation, the Flying Fish. The galaxy is 75,000 ly wide & features two dusty spiral arms extending from a pronounced central bar that give it a hook-like appearance. The galaxy’s distorted shape is most likely the result of a close encounter w/ a smaller, unseen galaxy

Stephan's Quintet, a compact group of galaxies discovered about 130 years ago and located about 280 million light years from Earth, provides a rare opportunity to observe a galaxy group in the process of evolving from an X-ray faint system dominated by spiral galaxies to a more developed system dominated by elliptical galaxies and bright X-ray emission.

It might look like a spoked wheel or even a "Chakram" weapon wielded by warriors like "Xena," from the fictional TV show, but this ringed galaxy is actually a vast place of stellar life. A newly released image from NASA's .

Active Galactic Nuclei - Merging X-ray data (blue) from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory with microwave (orange) and visible images reveals the jets and radio-emitting lobes emanating from Centaurus A's central black hole.

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. It shines in the constellation of Canis Major and is visible from most everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months.
