The Sunflower Galaxy (also known as Messier 63, M63, or NGC 5055) is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici consisting of a central disc surrounded by many short spiral arm segments. The Sunflower Galaxy is part of the M51 Group, a group of galaxies that also includes the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51).

Messier 9 The globular star cluster Messier 9 has over stars within a diameter of about 90 light years. It is light years from Earth, near the central bulge of our Milky Way galaxy in the constellation of Sagittarius.

NGC 5907, edge-on spiral galaxy, and its vast arcing star streams - debris from a long ago torn apart satellite galaxy - stretching more than 150,000 light-years from the galaxy proper.  Also known as the Splinter or Knife Edge Galaxy, it is located about 40 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco.

Grand tidal streams of stars seem to surround galaxy NGC The arcing structures form tenuous loops extending more than light-years from the narrow, edge-on spiral, also known as the Splinter or Knife Edge Galaxy.

1998. What may first appear as a sunny side up egg is actually NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's face-on snapshot of the small spiral galaxy NGC 7742. But NGC 7742 is not a run-of-the-mill spiral galaxy. In fact, this spiral is known to be a Seyfert 2 active galaxy, a type of galaxy that is probably powered by a black hole residing in its core.

NGC 474 is an elliptical galaxy in the constellation Pisces. This large galaxy is known to possess tidal tails, although their origins remain unknown. These tidal tails may be related to debris left over from absorbing numerous small galaxies in the past billion years. Or the shells may be like ripples in a pond, where the ongoing collision with the spiral galaxy just above NGC 474 is causing density waves to ripple though it.

Human-Universe Comparison.  What if the universe is a metaphor for God and we are created in its image? So beautiful!

Everything really is connected. The Mandelbrot Set at microscopic & galactic scale is exactly the same. The Fabric of Reality in all it's glory. Brain cell, the universe, birth of a cell, death of a star, eye and nebula.

Also known as NGC 253, the Sculptor galaxy is part of a cluster of galaxies visible to observers in the Southern hemisphere. It is known as a starburst galaxy for the extraordinarily strong star formation in its nucleus. - Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech
