The Triple Galaxy

0

The Hubble Space Telescope took a closer look at this triple galaxy group on April 1 and 2 after 140,000 people around the world voted on six potential targets.

The areas have previously only been photographed by ground-based telescopes:

The Arp 274 galaxy group won the competition with more than 67,000 votes. Hubble's image suggests the galaxies may not be close enough together to interact as they appear to be in the image taken by the Palomar Observatory near San Diego.

This always fascinates me when I see such pictures: "Hubble’s image suggests the galaxies may not be close enough together to interact as they appear to be" ...So this picture is a question of visual alignment that groups these galaxies while in fact they could even be far far away from eachother...? That is awesome.
