Description

Messier 77 (also known as NGC 106 is a barred spiral galaxy about 47 million light-years away in the constellation Cetus. Messier 77's diameter is estimated at 170,000 light-years.

I chose this beautiful galaxy because they are rarely seen here on recordings. It was relatively difficult to get details from this small object.

I hope you like the picture.
