Caption: Interacting galaxies. Optical image of two interacting galaxies, NGC 2993 (lower left) and NGC 2992 (upper right), together known as Arp 245. North is at top. The galaxies' interaction has led to the formation of large wisps and streamers of gas, dust and stars. NGC 2992 is also a Seyfert galaxy, one with an active nucleus (white) which is relatively very bright. Both these galaxies are in the constellation Hydra.
