The Cartwheel Galaxy is the result of two galaxies that collided about 700 million years ago. The outside ring is comprised of hot blue stars, formed from waves of density moving outwards following the collision. It's a bit larger than the Milky Way, and is located in the constellation Sculptor. It's about 500 million light years distant, or nearly 3 sextillion miles.

Westmoreland Falls is a magnificent hidden gem tucked away in lush rainforest, just a short 15 minute drive from Mole Creek. Driving to the waterfall from Mole Creek was relatively easy, though.
