For reasons unknown, star Mon's outer surface suddenly greatly expanded with the result that it became the brightest star in the entire Milky Way Galaxy in January Then, just as suddenly, it faded. A stellar flash like this had never been seen before.

The Antennae Galaxies are undergoing a galactic collision. Located in the NGC 4038 group with 5 other galaxies, they are named for the two long tails of stars, gas and dust ejected from them as a result of the collision resemble an insect's antennae. The nuclei of the two galaxies are joining to become one giant. Most galaxies probably undergo at least one significant collision in their lifetimes.This is likely the future of our Milky Way when it collides with the Andromeda Galaxy

The merging Antennae galaxies - As the two galaxies smash together, billions of stars are born, mostly in groups and clusters of stars. From Hubble Telescope
