The area around ESO 381-12 (ground-based image)
This image from the Digitized Sky Survey shows the area around galaxy ESO 381-12.
The strikingly uneven structure and the clusters of stars that orbit around the galaxy suggest that ESO 381-12 may have been part of a dramatic collision sometime in its relatively recent past.
