Description

The Cigar Galaxy (M82) is a starburst galaxy about 12 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Ursa Major. It is about five times more luminous than the whole Milky Way and has a centre one hundred times more luminous than our galaxy’s centre. The starburst activity is thought to have been triggered by interaction with neighbouring galaxy M81.
