The Whirlpool Galaxy (M51A or NGC 5194) and (M51B or NGC 5195, left). The Whirlpool Galaxy is a grand-design spiral galaxy, interacting with NGC 5195, a dwarg galxy. Both galaxies are located 23 ± 4 million light-years away in Canes Venatici.

NGC 1309 is a spiral galaxy of about 75,000 light-years across, located approximately 120 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus, and is one of over 200 members of the Eridanus Group of galaxies. It is running away from us at 2136 kilometers per second.
