The Galaxiy M 81 also called Bode's Galaxy and its companion M82 the Cigar Galaxy are located in the constellation Ursa Major. M81 and M82 interact with each other. The formation of new stars in M82 produces a high energy solar wind that drives clouds of inonised hydrogen gas and leads to the emission of red light.
