Two Interacting Galaxies Defy Cosmic Convention

Hubble Spots Two Interacting Galaxies Defying Cosmic Convention NASA - Hubble Space Telescope patch. March 2017 Some galaxies are harder to classify than others. Here, Hubble’s trusty Wide Field.

NGC 2146 A galaxy being stretched out of shape has been imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. Known as NGC 2146, it has been severely warped and deformed so that an immense dusty arm of glittering material now lies directly in front of the centre of the galaxy, as seen in the image. NGC 2146 is classified as a barred spiral due to its shape, but the most distinctive feature is the dusty spiral arm that has looped in front of the galaxy’s core as seen from our perspective. The forces…

#NGC7714

NGC 7714 ~ This unusual structure is a river of Sun-like stars that has been pulled deep into space by the gravitational tug of a passing galaxy (not pictured) during a near-collision approximately 100 million years ago.

Hubble Views the Whirling Disk of NGC 4526 This neat little galaxy is known as NGC Its dark lanes of dust and bright diffuse glow make the galaxy appear to hang like a halo in the emptiness of space in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Hubble's Twisted Galaxy Gravity governs the movements of the cosmos. It draws flocks of galaxies together to form small groups and more massive galaxy clusters, and brings duos so close that they begin to tug at one another.

ACT-CLJ0102-4915 aka "El Gordo" ("the Fat One" in Spanish) is the largest, hottest, and brightest X-ray galaxy cluster ever discovered in the distant Universe and contains the mass of a staggering three million billion suns. (Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, RELICS)

Hubble Weighs in on Mass of Three Million Billion Suns

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.

Galaxy-it looks like a portal to a place that's fascinating. Or it could be a ship that transports stars. Or it could be a hula hoop that an item in space likes to jump through as an activity.

Galaxy NGC 4594 Sombrero Galaxy): approximately 26 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Virgo, it is considered a "nearby" galaxy.

A spectacular tail stretches down for about 300,000 light-years from NGC 3628's warped, edge-on disk. Known as a tidal tail, the structure has been drawn out of the galaxy by gravitational tides during brief but violent past interactions with its large neighbors.

We forget running away and stop in our tracks to listen and hear the pull of our own voices like the Magi with their star, the wise ones with their camels, perfumes and gold, believing their inner songs, a journey in the bones of their feet, like migrating birds or salmon swimming ladders of stars to the beginning of life. — LINDA HOGAN, FROM “ME, CROW, FISH, AND THE MAGI,” IN SAVINGS

Gorgeous color in the Milky Way and good beta on the photo This LIFE is really Awesome and frightening to think about :P

The Sombrero galaxy was voted best picture taken by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as spectacular as its appearance. The Sombrero Galaxy spans about 50,000 light years across and lies 28 million light years away.

https://flic.kr/p/D3CxNa | Hubble Views a Galactic Mega-merger | The subject of this NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image is known as NGC 3597. It is the product of a collision between two good-sized galaxies, and is slowly evolving to become a giant elliptical galaxy. This type of galaxy has grown more and more common as the universe has evolved, with initially small galaxies merging and progressively building up into larger galactic structures over time.  NGC 3597 is located…
