The Pinwheel Galaxy, (Messier 101) is a beautiful face-on spiral galaxy over 21 million light years from Earth.


By any measure it is large, with a diameter of 170 light years and over 1 trillion Solar masses. In contrast, our galaxy the Milky Way is 100 light years diameter and 300-400 billion Solar masses.
