Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Galaxies Spiral Galaxies Elliptical Galaxies Irregular Galaxies Colliding Galaxies Spiral galaxies are rich in gas and dust and containcountless stars. They are a cluster of stars that orbit around the center of the galaxy, which is a black hole. The galaxy we live in is called The Milky Way, which is also classified as a spiral galaxy. Galaxies evolve with time,therefore causing distortions in galaxies. These distortions can easily cause collisionsbetween galaxies. No spiral structure or flattened disks. Less motion occurs in these galaxies and less dust and gas is present. 3% other 97% Spiral & Elliptical galaxies Only 3% of galaxies observed can be classified as either elliptical or spiral. We are here. Milky Way Galaxy These galaxies have little to nosymmetry in their structureand few systematic features. How Big Is A Galaxy? Galaxies are millions and billions of stars with gas and dust that are held together by gravitational pull. Formed by Hydrogen and Helium gasThere are mainly four differentkinds of galaxies and they rangein every shape and size. The Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 lightyearslong. A light year is approximately 9.5 trillionkilometers.That's like driving from Weston toRedding100,000,000,000,000,000 times. Located 6 million lightyears from The Milky Way, There is a galaxy called IC1101. This galaxy is 60times the size of The Milky Way. That is approximately the size of a pea compared to a soccer ball.
