what animal do you want to see photoshopped with a universey picture on it?
This new three-color composite image was captured by the Isaac Newton Telescope in La Palma, Spain.
Known more officially as Messier 101 or NGC 5457, this classic spiral galaxy is 27 million light years from Earth in the Ursa Major constellation, also known as the Big Dipper. Its slight asymmetry is thought to be the result of an encounter with another galaxy in the recent (astronomically speaking) past. This event also left many huge clouds of glowing gas and plasma known as H II regions.
Though the galaxy, which measures 170,000 light-years across, is visible with the naked eye as a fuzzy spot, large telescopes are needed to see any detail.
milky way galaxy.
hey! i think i can see my house!
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune make up the Jovian Planets.
They are all large, gas filled, and far away from the sun.
(Hence why Pluto does not really fit in, it is small and solid.)
