Space - A Pair of Spiral Galaxies ARP 273 from Hubble Telescope Art Print

Brandywine General Store


A premium Quality Art Print of Images of a Pair of Spiral Galaxies known as ARP 273 taken from the Hubble Space Telescope for sale by Brandywine General Store. This photogenic pair of spiral galaxies are in the Andromeda Constellation and is located roughly 300 million light years from Earth. The image shows a tenuous tidal bridge of material between the two galaxies that are separated from each other by tens of thousands of light years, while in this picture the galaxies look like they are almost touching each other, due to the huge distances of space. The larger of the spiral galaxies is known as UGC 1810 and has a disk that is distorted into a rose like shape by the gravitational tidal pull of the companion galaxy below it, which is known as UGC 1813.The swath of blue jewel like points across the top is the combined light from clusters of intensely bright and hot young blue stars. These massive stars glow fiercely in ultraviolet light. The large galaxy has 5 times the mass as the smaller neighbor. The Small Spiral Galaxy shows distinct signs of intense star formation at its nucleus, perhaps triggered by the encounter with the larger companion galaxy.
