November 2009 - Interacting galaxies Arp 147

Calendar Nov 2009

The two interacting galaxies known as Arp 147 happen to be oriented so that they appear to outline the number 10 on the sky. The left-most galaxy, or the “one” in this image, is relatively undisturbed but the right-most galaxy, the “zero” of the pair, exhibits a clumpy, blue ring of intense star formation.
