4 spiral galaxies in NGC 4410

These 4 spiral galaxies in Galaxy Group NGC 4410 display an extraordinary cosmic spectacle, each generating immense tidal forces that rip each other apart as they pass close to each other.

A Tidal Galaxy "A previously unsuspected tidal dwarf galaxy candidate appears only in the ultraviolet, indicating the presence of many hot young stars as seen in this cool space Image. IC 4970, the small disk galaxy interacting with NGC 6872, is located above the spiral’s central region. The spiral is 522,000 light-years across from the tip of one outstretched arm to the tip of the other, which makes it about five times the size of our home galaxy, the Milky Way

Mariano Minguela Merino NGC 7129 es una nebulosa de reflexión en forma de capullo de rosa de unos 10 años luz de diámetro, situada a unos 3.330 años-luz de la Tierra en la constelación septentrional de Cefeo. Es el hogar de un joven cúmulo abierto que contiene más de 130 estrellas de menos de 1 millón de años, muy joven para los estándares astronómicos. Estas estrellas son responsables de la iluminación de la nebulosa azulada rodea.

NGC 7129 is a reflection nebula and spent star-forming region located light years away in the constellation Cepheus. A young open cluster is responsible for illuminating the surrounding nebula.

Sagittarius A*: NASA X-ray Telescopes Find Black Hole May Be a Neutrino Factory  •Researchers have found evidence that the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be generating neutrinos. •Neutrinos are tiny particles that have virtually no mass and carry no electric charge. •These particles are unusual because they can travel across the Universe without being absorbed or deflected.
