Hubble image of Arp 243 (NASA, ESA, A. Evans) Hubble Space Telescope images of an unusual galaxy released this week have revealed to astronomers that the object is actually the result of a galactic collision. The object, called NGC 2623 or Arp 243, is 250 million light-years from the Earth.

The images show two tails extending out from the center that contain young stars created during the merger process.
