Caption

Interacting galaxies NGC 3690 and IC 694. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image of two interacting barred irregular galaxies, collectively known as Arp 299. Arp 299 is located about 150 million light years away in the constellation of Ursa Major. The interactions between the two galaxies have produced powerful starburst regions and six supernovae have been observed over just fifteen years. The galaxies are also a strong source of infrared emission. Image obtained on 18th March 2002.
