Astronomy Tuesday




I've posted images of the Tadpole Galaxy before, but this is a particularly good one.

In addition to the wonderful variety of galaxies dancing in the background, this photo really highlights that amazing tail -- the result of a galactic collision long ago -- and all those bright blue baby stars going about the endless business of being born despite being yanked away from their galactic home.
