This spectacular spiral galaxy is known to astronomers as Messier 83. Colloquially, it is also called the Southern Pinwheel due to its similarity to the more northerly Pinwheel galaxy Messier 101. NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope shows us, in spectacular detail, the infrared structure of what many think of as our own Milky Way galaxys smaller cousin.

Such a beautiful photo. It gives so many different thoughts that have nothing to necessarily do with the others. ᘡղbᘠ

The Milky Way - 84 Million Stars in 9 Billion Pixels via petapixel: The image is a composite of thousands of photos shot by the VISTA survey camera by Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. if you were to print out this image as a standard book photograph, it would be nearly 30-feet wide and 23-feet. Here is the link to the zoomable image. http://www.eso.org/public/images/eso1242a/zoomable/  #Astronomy #Milky_Way  #hahahaha8888
