Pinwheel Galaxy $2.00

Text on the back of card.

This beautiful spiral galaxy is like an island in space made up of billions of suns. It is about 10 million light years away from us - this means that the light captured on film to make this photo left the galaxy 10 million years ago. This is well before humans began to inhabit the Earth.

M83 displays its billions of stars in long brilliant arms that appear to be spinning in space. Although it is tremendous in size, about 30,000 light years in diameter, it is so distant that individual stars cannot be seen. Instead we see the accumulated glow of its stars as a cloud-like formation.

The card is in an individual bag to keep it clean. It is untouched until you open it.

The 5" x 7" (12.5cm x 17.5cm) card comes with a white envelope.

Printed in California, USA.
