Galactic Fake Out

Hey Space Placers!

Is this what M-33 and Andromeda Galaxy will look like as they barrel in towards the Milky Way - see my blog on May 31, 2012.

No, it is a chance alignment of a face on spiral galaxy with an edge on spiral galaxy that are 140 million light years from us. But Hubble SPace Telescope(HST) caught them as they passed one another in our line of sight. I have never seen such a picture in such detail. Really is amazing to look at, especially the larger size photos at the website below..
