  Black Eye Galaxy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Black Eye Galaxy (also known as the Evil Eye Galaxy, the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy, Messier Object 64, M64, or NGC 4826) was discovered by Edward Pigott in March 1779, and independently by Johann Elert Bode in April of the same year, as well as by Charles Messier in 1780.
As in the majority of galaxies, all of the stars in M64 are rotating in the same direction, clockwise as seen in the Hubble image.
The small galaxy that impinged on its neighbour has now been almost completely destroyed, its stars either merged with the main galaxy or scattered into space, but signs of the collision persist in the backward motion of gas at the outer edge of M64.

The Black-Eye Galaxy is unusual in that the galaxy has a dark dust cloud in the region of the central nucleus, bordering the entire north and east side of the oval central mass.
This galaxy is the result of a collusion between a large galaxy and a small galaxy.
The galaxy was discovered by J.E. Bode on April 4, 1779, and was recorded by Charles Messier in March 1780.

 Black Eye Galaxy (M64, NGC 4826)
A relatively nearby spiral galaxy, in the constellation Coma Berenices, with a conspicuous dark feature to one side of the bright nucleus; discovered by Johan Bode in 1779, it is also called the Sleeping Beauty Galaxy.
This rubbing may explain the vigorous burst of star formation that is currently taking place in the galaxy and is visible as blue knots embedded in the huge dust lane.
The strange disk and dust lane, according to one theory, may be the result of material from a former companion galaxy that has been accreted but has yet to settle into the orbital plane of the disk.

 Galaxy M 64
Galaxy M 64 (which is also known as the Black Eye Galaxy) is a spiral galaxy located some 17 million light years away toward the constellation Coma Berenices.
The unusual appearance of Galaxy M 64––marked by a dark band of obscuring dust covering part of the bright nucleus of the galaxy––was caused by a collision of the galaxy with a smaller companion galaxy, probably more than one billion years ago.
Galaxy M 64 is also unusual in that gas and dust in the outer regions of the galaxy rotate opposite gas and dust in the inner regions of the galaxy.

The early-type spiral galaxy NGC 4826 is sometimes called a fl-eye galaxy or a sleeping beauty because of the dark lane running at about 2 kpc from the center of the galaxy.
This suggests that this spiral galaxy has undergone and is still undergoing a significant degree of structural evolution due to mergers.
The ASCA observation of this galaxy will probes what is happening inside the dark lane where the flip of the rotation occurs, and in the nuclear region of the galaxy.

The forces of gravity at work within the disc create density waves, that in turn generate a spiral structure.

The Black Eye Galaxy in Coma Berenices was discovered by Bode in April 1779.
M64 was recently shown to have two counterrotating systems of stars and gas in its disk: The inner part is about 6,000 light years across and is rubbing along the inner edge of the outer disk, which rotates opposite and extends up to at least 40,000 light years.
The fascinating internal motions of M64 are thought to be the result of a collision between a small galaxy and a large galaxy - where the resultant mix has not yet settled down.

The radial velocity of 377 km/sec in recession would yield about 16 million light years (H0=75), but this is certainly very inacurate, as the direction to this galaxy is close to the Virgo cluster, so that a considerable deviation from the Hubble law must be taken into account.
