~~A rose made of galaxies ~ pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273. The distorted shape of the larger of the two galaxies shows signs of tidal interactions with the smaller of the two. It is thought that the smaller galaxy has actually passed through the larger one | Hubble~~

Interacting Galaxies Arp 273 taken by the Hubble Space Telescope: The larger of the spiral galaxies, known as UGC 1810, has a disk that is distorted into a rose-like shape by the gravitational tidal pull of the companion galaxy below it, known as UGC 1813. #Arp_273 #Hubble_Space_Telescope

Arp 273 - Located in the constellation Andromeda, about 300 million light-years away, are the interacting galaxies Arp 273. UGC 1810 is the tidally (caused by gravitational influence) distorted spiral galaxy at image top, through which, it is thought, the smaller UGC 1813, passed - The distortion of the larger galaxy plus the apparent new star formation region in the smaller brings weight to the thought

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers pointed Hubble's eye at an especially photogenic pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273.
