Pinwheel Galaxy Flag

Pinwheel Galaxy Flag

The Pinwheel Galaxy is located in Ursa Major, or rather by the upper handle of the Big Dipper. It is about 27 million light years away. It's namesake is reflective of its shape.

Originally cataloged by Charles Messier, a Frenchman who was two years older than George Washington.
