This is the #Cigar Galaxy, otherwise known as #NGC 3034 or M82. This galaxy is ‘nearby” it’s at a neighbourly distance of 12-million light-years, in the constellation of Ursa Major. The galaxy itself is classified as a starburst #galaxy. As a whole, M82 is 5 times brighter than the Milky Way. Up until recently, M82 was thought to be an irregular galaxy, but astronomers have since discovered two spiral arms.
