Galaxies, Stars and Nebulae series With a stylized Red Rising Phoenix, this mosaic image of the magnificent starburst galaxy, Messier 82 (aka Cigar Galaxy) is amazing. It is a galaxy remarkable for its webs of shredded clouds and flame-like plumes of glowing hydrogen blasting out from its central regions where young stars are being born 10 times faster than they are inside in our Milky Way Galaxy.
