Pan across NGC 3314

Loading player...

This video pans across Hubble observations of NGC 3314A and NGC 3314B, a pair of galaxies in the constellation Hydra. While they might look like they are in the midst of a cosmic collision, they are in fact separated by around 20 million light-years of space. The overlap is simply a trick of perspective.
