Zoom into galaxy pair Arp 116

This video zooms in from a view of the night sky, through the constellation of Virgo, and into a Hubble view of Arp 116, a pair of galaxies made up of a giant elliptical galaxy known as M60, and a much smaller spiral galaxy, NGC 4647.

Just below and to the right of M60, is their even smaller neighbour M60-UCD1.
