Spiral galaxy. Computer graphic of an imaginary spiral galaxy spinning violently around a glowing white centre. Its coloured arms are streaked, creating an impression of rapid movement which is increasingly fast towards the galaxy's centre. A spiral galaxy consists of arms of stars and gas curving out from a rotating centre. The majority of galaxies are thought to be spiral, including our own, the Milky Way.
