M101 is a spiral galaxy located on the northern border of Ursa Major. It is also the largest Galaxy in the near universe, extending its range to two galaxies. Facing the earth, the area covered is about a full moon.The first person to observe the M101 was the French Meishan, who first observed the M101 with an astronomical telescope in 1781.

I like this galaxy very much. On my device, the galaxy is big enough.The galaxy can see the origin of the universe,Maybe.
