NGC4631 is a spiral galaxy only 25 million light-years away, toward the well-trained northern constellation CanesVenatici. Seen egde-on, the galaxy is similar in size to the Milky Way. Its distorted wedge shape suggests to some a cosmic herring and to others its popular moniker, The Whale Galaxy.

At the top, large spiral galaxy NGC 1055, and the bottom spiral Messier 77, in this sharp cosmic view toward the aquatic constellation Cetus. The narrowed, dusty appearance of edge-on spiral NGC 1055 contrasts nicely with the face-on view of M77's bright nucleus and spiral arms. Both over 100,000 light-years across, the pair are dominant members of a small galaxy group about 60 million light-years away. M77 and NGC 1055 are separated by at least 500,000 light-years.
