M106, an unexpected jewel for spiral galaxies !

M106 is an unexpected jewel for spiral galaxies.
The brightest portions of the galaxy (center) show tremendous activity of star formation between the darker clouds of gas.
One such cloud seems to rise out of the disk like a wall and prevents us from seeing directly into the nucleus. This galaxy is estimated to be around 21 million light years away.
