Caption: Stephan's Quintet galaxies (Hickson Compact Group 92), Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image. At upper left is NGC 7320, which is a foreground galaxy around 40 million light years distant in the constellation of Pegasus. The other galaxies are about 290 million light years away. They are: NGC 7319 (upper right), NGC 7317 (bottom left), and two interacting galaxies (centre) NGC 7318A (lower) and NGC 7318B (upper). The image covers an area 345,000 light years across. Image obtained in July and August 2009 by Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) as part of the Hubble Servicing Mission 4 Early Release Observations (SM4 ERO).
