About this Informing European Southern Observatory.

“Just as humans collide with each other at a busy intersection, so can galaxies in the universe collide with each other! But in this case the result is more dramatic than a small shock. When two galaxies collide, they merge and give birth to something new and larger. Examples include the Galaxy NGC 7727”, he wrote in the Observatory.

The collision of two galaxies occurred about a billion years ago. The NGC 7727 formed from them has an irregular shape so its effects can still be seen.

The galaxy is located about 89 million light-years from Earth. The images were obtained using the VLT Survey Telescope (VST) in Chile.

The photo was taken as part of the VST-ATLAS study. According to astronomers, the goal is to map a large area of ​​the southern sky that could “contain about 19,000 full moons”. In addition, scientists are trying to explore the nature of dark energy in this way.
