Hi all,

Today, another Messier galaxy has been uploaded: M63, the Sunflower Galaxy. This galaxy has a weakly active nucleus and is classified as LINER. Remarkable in this galaxy is the presence of a very conspicuous star stream around it. This stream was discovered through a collaboration between amateur and professional astronomers in 2011. You can find the image as well as additional information at:
