Caption

Colliding galaxies NGC 1512 and NGC 1510, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) image. At left is the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1512, with the dwarf galaxy NGC 1510 at right. Both galaxies are about 30 million light years from Earth, in the constellation of Horologium. They are currently in the process of merging. At the end of this process NGC 1512 will have cannibalised its smaller companion. This optical and ultraviolet image was obtained by the HST's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3). Image published in 2017.
