The Whale Galaxy

NGC 4631, about 25 million light years away, is about the same size as our galaxy, which we call the Galaxy (Greek for Milk), but it is viewed edge on and it has been slightly distorted from gravitational interaction with two other galaxies, not in the picture. Beautiful and it actually looks like its name.
