NGC 5194 - Whirlpool Galaxy (M51)  is an interacting grand-design spiral galaxy with a Seyfert 2 active galactic nucleus in the constellation Canes Venatici. It was the first galaxy to be classified as a spiral galaxy.

This four-color view of the Whirlpool Galaxy was taken before Spitzer ran out of coolant. Combined with a visible-light photo taken by the Kitt Peak National Observatory, the picture highlights that the drastically different galaxies are merging. "In visible light, that's not quite apparent. The infrared really shows it, though, as a red galaxy and a blue galaxy," Smith said, noting that studying such galaxy collisions was a primary goal of Spitzer.

The Whirlpool Galaxy is a classic spiral galaxy. At only 30 million light years distant and fully 60 thousand light years across, M51, also known as NGC 5194, is one of the brightest and most picturesque galaxies on the sky.

M51: The Whirlpool Galaxy. Follow the handle of the Big Dipper away from the dipper's bowl until you get to the handle's last bright star. Then, just slide your telescope a little south and west and you might find this stunning pair of interacting galaxies
