This is a photo from the NASA-it shows what the Hubble Telescope found in the center of the Whirlpool Galaxy-How AWESOME is our God???

Then, just slide your telescope a little south and west and you might find this stunning pair of interacting galaxies, the 51st entry in Charles Messier famous catalog.

30 Unbelievable Photos of Space

The Whirlpool Galaxy, a classic spiral galaxy, is pictured in this NASA handout photo. At only 30 million light years distant and fully 60 thousand light years across, also known as NGC is one of the brightest and most picturesque galaxies on the sky.

WHEN GALAXIES COLLIDE  The Whirlpool Galaxy, the red spiral, and its companion galaxy, NG 5195 are 23 million light-years from Earth - that's relatively close. IRAC shows the warm dust in red, a sign of active star formation probably triggered by a collision between the two galaxies.

This image by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows a face-on view of the spiral galaxy M51, dubbed the Whirlpool Galaxy.  Taken in visible light, it highlights the attributes of a typical spiral galaxy, including graceful, curving arms, pink star-forming regions, and brilliant blue strands of star clusters.

spaceplasma: “ The Two-faced Whirlpool Galaxy “ To map the galaxy’s dust structure, scientists collected the galaxy’s starlight by combining images taken in visible and near-infrared light.

NGC 5194 - Whirlpool Galaxy (M51)  is an interacting grand-design spiral galaxy with a Seyfert 2 active galactic nucleus in the constellation Canes Venatici. It was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy.
