  The surroundings of the interacting galaxy NGC 5291

The surroundings of the interacting galaxy NGC 5291
Image credit: ESO

Uploader comment: The spectacular aftermath of a 360 million year old cosmic collision is revealed in great detail in this image from ESO’s Very Large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory. Among the debris surrounding the elliptical galaxy NGC 5291 at the centre is a rare and mysterious young dwarf galaxy, which appears as a bright clump towards the right of the image.
