The galaxy is at a distance of 12 million light years from Earth and it can be clearly seen through binoculars or a small telescope.

NASA showed how the dust glows from UV radiation and light from the stars in a neighboring galaxy. The picture appeared on the page of the office Instagram.

Located in the Northern constellation URSA major galaxy M81 is shown in the collective photo with the infrared dot matrix camera and photometer at 24 microns.

The M81 was one of the first soon after the launch of the Spitzer space telescope in August 2003. On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of NASA Spitzer showed the object with advanced observations and improved treatment.

It is reported that dust in the galaxy is washed by ultraviolet and visible light from nearby stars. It absorbs ultraviolet light and re-emits the radiation.
