Caption: Interacting galaxies. Optical image of two interacting spiral galaxies, NGC 5427 (top) and NGC 5426 (bottom). The galaxies (together known as Arp 271) appear linked by a bridge of stars, gas and dust. NGC 5426 has many bright areas in its spiral arms, huge starbirth regions triggered by this interaction. This system lies in the constellation Virgo.
