Description

M82 is a prodigious star forming galaxy within the constellation Ursa Main. It’s about 12 million light-years away. M82 is being bodily affected by its bigger neighbor, the spiral M81. “Tidal forces attributable to gravity have deformed M82, a course of that began about 100 million years in the past. This interplay has triggered star formation to extend tenfold in comparison with “regular” galaxies.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messier_82]
