Go Back In space - Taken from Sweden  


Object: Messier 63 or NGC 5055 - Sunflower galaxy in Canes Venatici, magnitude 9.3, distance 27 Mly
Discovered by: Pierre M├ęchain on June 14, 1779
Note: The light of the galaxy you now are looking at started its journey around the very same time that the first apes emerged on earth, 10 million years later the first great apes arose and around another 10 million year later the great apes split into two different branches and one of them became the path for our humans ancestors. Now 27 million years later I captured this light that have been on such a long journey through cosmos, right here on my camera sensor. Just amazing.
