Despite the fact that all the current bulbs are taken by the James Webb Space TelescopeWith its impressive captures of the most remote regions of the universe, Hubble continues to have a wealth of collected data available for analysis.
Scientists continue to flock to the old space telescope to explore and try to find hidden secrets in never-before-seen regions of outer space. This is how in a data download, NASA researchers found a visual spectacle in a town very far from Earth.
According to what he reports the nasa portalwith Hubble data, the merger of two galaxies that are 671 million light years away from our planet was captured.
The merger of these galaxies forms a kind of ring, which turns light blue due to each of the gaseous and light elements of its stars, planets and stardust.
The merging galaxies
This pair of star clusters receives the scientific identification of Arp-Madore 417-391. NASA reports that the behavior of galaxies is unusual, but it is not the first time that they have seen this phenomenon.
Galaxies interact without colliding. It is a fusion without chaos, to call it somehow. “The two galaxies were distorted by gravity and twisted into a colossal ring, leaving their nuclei nestled next to each other,” explained the official site of the US space agency.
In order to record the impressive scene we shared with you in the space telescope’s official social media post, Hubble used its Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). This instrument or tool is prepared to search for galaxies and clusters of galaxies in the oldest possible universe.
