NGC 2244: The Rosette Nebula's center measures about 50 ly across, lies about 4500 ly away, and is visible w/binoculars towards the constellation of the Unicorn

Cartwheel Galaxy, ESO 350-40, is a lenticular galaxy about 500 mly away in the constellation Sculptor. It is an estimated 150,000 light-years across. The galaxy was once a normal spiral galaxy like the Milky Way before it apparently underwent a head-on collision with a smaller companion approximately 200 mya.

According to Quantum math, there is a mathematical explanation behind why the counterclockwise formation of a galaxy looks very similar to the whirlpool effect of water going down a drain. #Fractals in Nature
