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.
pulsar [IMPORTANT NOTE: I quit my job. I am left angry in my inaccessible dreams to venture, and paranoid of Asian women. Perhaps, I fell too in love with Old America, and they wish to change its history.] *my period also started, and I am left dealing with heavy cramping. I now have the most feminine excuse [the reason for sexism]. *****i am so happy! I needed to LEAVE. It was too much. [I left without saying "bye" to anyone. I am just being me.]
I missed it but I hope you saw it!!!!! Scott MacNeill created this wonderful composite image of 2013 Perseid meteors at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA. We love this image, because you can see the meteors coming from their radiant point in the constellation Perseus. Thank you, Scott! Visit Scott’s website, Exit Pupil Creative Workshop

This is the classic “Earthrise” photograph, captured by astronaut William Anders during the historic Apollo 8 mission – the first human mission to the Moon. This photograph was taken on December 24, 1968. If you’re standing on the surface of the Moon, the Earth doesn’t actually “rise”. Since the Moon is tidally locked to the Earth, our planet always hangs in exactly the same point of the sky.
