NGC 5403 - a galaxy colliding ... with itself

Recommended Posts

Well, not really actually. For some reason the stacking process produced this strange image.


Most likely the image registration process aligned on hot pixels. And since the camera (Liverpool Telescope) is used in two orientations (90 degrees rotation), this was the result.

Two colliding galaxies. Or is that three colliding galaxies? Or four?

That's ace, looks a lot like kylo rens light sabre - maybe it was on its way to Mimas? I need a coffee.

I agree. Enjoy the coffee.
