Arp 272

NGC 1179 (Arp is a remarkable collision between two spiral galaxies, NGC 6050 and IC and is part of the Hercules Galax.

NGC 6744, es una de las Galaxias más similares a nuestra vía láctea en el universo local. Esta vista ultravioleta destaca la extensión de las esponjas brazos espirales y demuestra que la formación de las estrellas puede ocurrir en las regiones externas de las Galaxias.

NGC 3718 (Arp 214) Distance: 42.4 Million Light Years  NGC 3718 and its companion NGC 3729 are physically related members of the Ursa Major galaxy cluster. The two galaxies appear to orbit each other at a projected separation of 147,000 light years. NGC 3718 seems to have a rudimentary bar and spiral structure although it is recognized as a peculiar galaxy and as such is listed within Arp's Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. via Dark Matter on Facebook by stephanii

This spectacular spiral galaxy is known to astronomers as Messier 83. Colloquially, it is also called  the Southern Pinwheel due to its similarity to the more northerly Pinwheel galaxy Messier 101. NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope shows us, in spectacular detail, the infrared structure of what many think of as our own Milky Way galaxys smaller cousin.

Andromeda Galaxy

School - In my later school life, I would like to study space, I dont know what class space would be but anything to do with it would be cool. I like space because it is very big and has a lot of mysteries to it.

Andromeda Galaxy Profile  The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) is the closest large galaxy to the Milky Way and is one only ten galaxies that can be seen unaided from the Earth. In approximately 4.5 billion years the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way are expected to collide. It is accompanied by at least 10 satellite galaxies the most notable of which is the Triangulum Galaxy.

Awesome

NGC 1672 is a barred spiral Seyfert II galaxy, more than 60 million light-years away in the direction of the southern constellation Dorado. by bessie

Edit

This artist’s impression of the distant galaxy SMM shows large bright clouds a few hundred light-years in size, which are regions of active star formation. These “star factories” are similar in size to those in the Milky Way, but one

The oldest starbust galaxy

HubbleSite - Picture Album: The Antennae Galaxies/NGC These two spiral galaxies, drawn together by gravity, started to interact a few hundred million years ago. The Antennae Galaxies are the nearest and youngest examples of a pair of colliding galaxies.

Messier 9 cluster: First discovered by Charles Messier in 1764, the globular cluster Messier 9 is a vast swarm of ancient stars located 25,000 light-years away, close to the center of the galaxy.   The cluster’s innermost stars have never been individually resolved - until now.   Hubble has captured the details of over 250,000 stars within it.  Most of Messier 9′s stars are nearly ten billion years old — twice the Sun’s age.

Messier 9 The globular star cluster Messier 9 has over stars within a diameter of about 90 light years. It is light years from Earth, near the central bulge of our Milky Way galaxy in the constellation of Sagittarius.

Magellanic Cloud Survey view of the Tarantula Nebula | The leader of the survey team, Maria-Rosa Cioni (University of Hertfordshire, UK) explains: "This view is of one of the most important regions of star formation in the local Universe, the spectacular 30 Doradus star-forming region, also called the Tarantula Nebula. At its core is a large cluster of stars called RMC 136, in which some of the most massive stars known are located."

I met you on the rebound of loves gone wrong When my eyes met yours my heart was filled with song My dreams revolved around your emotion My hopes were to be the emblem of your love and devotion Even if I were mere rotting driftwood upon forgotten ocean

Galaxies Collide Galaxy mergers - here shown is the system NGC 2207 in the constellation Canis Major - are the most likely reason why active galactic nuclei occur.
