Caption: Grus interacting galaxies. These galaxies are NGC 7582 (lower left), NGC 7590 (upper centre) and NGC 7599 (upper right). They are part of what is called the Grus Quartet, four spiral galaxies that have high starburst activity and are thought to be interacting gravitationally. They are around 75 million light years from Earth, in the constellation of Grus.
