ESA/Hubble & NASA Monday, February 13, 2012: The Hubble Space Telescope shows three galaxies in this image. Two, including the tilted galaxy at the bottom and the small galaxy at top center, show spiral arms around a bright nucleus, like our own Milky Way galaxy. However, Markarian 779, the galaxy at the top of this image, possesses a distorted appearance, likely the product of a recent galactic merger between two spirals. This collision destroyed the spiral arms of the galaxies and…

NGC 1672 Barred Spiral Galaxy in Dorado (the Swordfish), 60 mly away. It has many dark filamentary dust lanes that extend in many directions, from the galactic nuc-leus to the inner edges of the spiral arms.
