Caption

Colliding galaxies. Optical image of colliding galaxies (centre). The elliptical galaxy at centre is NGC 5153, with the distorted spiral of NGC 5152 just to its right. At upper right is the galaxy NGC 5150. Collisions between galaxies usually result in a burst of star formation due to the gravitational interactions between them. These galaxies are in the constellation Hydra.
