More jaw dropping images... what a gorgeous universe we live in.




The Pinwheel Galaxy is one of the most fantastic spiral galaxies to view from Earth because it is facing us, displaying the full glory of its awesome shape. This new three-color composite image was captured by the Isaac Newton Telescope in La Palma, Spain.



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.
