See below.



Most galaxies are spiral(milky way), elliptical, lenticular and irregular shape.

The first shape to be known was spiral because milky way is a spiral galaxy. Spiral galaxies look like pinwheel.

Elliptical galaxies are generally smooth and oval.

And some galaxies are neither spiral nor elliptical , they are irregular . Irregular galaxies are generally small in size.
