The Cartwheel Galaxy, 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 very far away in the constellation Sculptor. It's about 500 million light years distant, or nearly 3 sextillion miles. different shot.

Ophiuchus: Spotted! A Rarely Seen Constellation Shines This Summer - Although it is one of the largest constellations in the sky, Ophiuchus, the serpent bearer, is one of the least well-known. Ophiuchus made the news a couple of years ago when astrologers finally acknowledged his existence, even though astronomers have known about Ophiuchus for thousands of years.

Kenneth was walking around the castle, no place in mind when he comes upon this room and he pushed open the door all the way. "Wow." He gasps pulling his sleeve back down as he enters the room. (Open)

The Tadpole Galaxy (also known as UGC 10214 or Arp 188) is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located about 420 million light-years away toward the northern constellation Draco. Its most dramatic features are an incredibly long trail of stars and massive, bright blue star clusters, reflecting the essence of our dynamic, restless and violent Universe. - Credit: NASA, Hubble, Mehdi Bozzo-Rey
