A View Toward Messier 106 aka NGC about light-years across and million light-years away, the largest member of the Canes II galaxy group.

The Coma Cluster of Galaxies (May 2 2010) Credit & Copyright: Dean Rowe Almost every object in the above photograph is a galaxy. The Coma Cluster of Galaxies pictured above is one of the densest clusters known - it contains thousands of galaxies. Each of these galaxies houses billions of stars - just as our own Milky Way Galaxy does. Although nearby when compared to most other clusters, light from the Coma Cluster still takes hundreds of millions of years to reach us.

Hitomi Launches  On February 17 at 5:45pm JST this H-IIA rocket blasted skyward from JAXA's Tanegashima Space Center located off the southern coast of Japan, planet Earth. Onboard was the ASTRO-H X-ray astronomy satellite, now in orbit. Designed to explore the extreme cosmos from black holes to massive galaxy clusters, the satellite observatory is equipped with four cutting-edge X-ray telescopes and instruments sensitive to photon energies from 300 to 600,000 electron volts. By comparison…

NGC 1300 by Steven Marx. A barred spiral galaxy about 61 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The galaxy is about light-years across; just slightly larger than our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is a member of the Eridanus Cluster.

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.
