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.
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.

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.
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 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.
