Messier 98 (also known as M98 or NGC 4192), is an intermediate spiral galaxy located about 44.4 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices  It is a member of the Virgo Cluster, which is a large, relatively nearby cluster of galaxies. About 750 million years ago, NGC 4192 may have interacted with the large spiral galaxy NGC 4254. The two are now separated by a distance of 1,300,000 light years.

The Crab Nebula (M1) ~ The first object on Charles Messier's famous 18th century list of things which are not comets. In fact, the Crab is now known to be a supernova remnant, debris from the death explosion of a massive star, witnessed and recorded by astronomers in the year 1054. This sharp, ground-based telescopic view uses narrowband data to track emission from ionized oxygen and hydrogen atoms (in blue and red) and explore the tangled filaments within the still expanding cloud.
