Sculptor Galaxy, named so because it is located in the Sculptor
constellation, is also called the Silver Dollar Galaxy due to its
appearance. It is over 11 million light-years from Earth and measures
90,000 light-years across. Because of its brightness it is a well
studied galaxy, and is in the middle of a "starburst" period of star
formation. Note the numerous and complex dust lanes. North
is at the top.
