Caption

Antennae Galaxies. Artwork of the Antennae Galaxies as seen from a hypothetical nearby planet. An astronaut is seen by the shores of a sea looking at the scene. The Antennae Galaxies are two colliding galaxies (NGC 4038 and NGC 4039) which lie around 63 million light years from Earth. NGC 4038 is the galaxy seen here, with NGC 4039 below the horizon. The collision caused a massive burst of star formation in both galaxies, seen here as the extremely bright areas. Numerous dark lanes of dust are also seen crossing the galaxy.
