Messier 82 is a starburst galaxy approximately 12 million light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major. As a member of the M 81 group, it is about five times more luminous than the whole Milky Way and has a center one hundred times more luminous than our galaxy's center. The starburst activity is thought to have been triggered by interaction with neighboring galaxy M 81.
