It is accompanied by at least 10 satellite galaxies the most notable of which is the Triangulum Galaxy.


Galaxies away

The Antennae Galaxies are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow). This view combines ALMA observations, made in two different wavelength ranges with visible-light observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
